Need suggestions with my AMD budget build

I'm building a budget gaming AMD-based rig at around 800-900$, that would run current games on high/ultra.
CPU: FX-6300
Mobo:Gigabyte ga-970a-ds3
Cpu cooler: Hyper evo 212
Memory:Corsair Vengeance ddr3 1600 8gb (2x4gb)
Hdd: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500gb 7200 RPM
GPU: Sapphire HD 7870 2gb

I would like some suggestion on what psu and case to get, would a 430w psu be enough for this build?

  1. Is the corsair value series 550w good?
  2. corsair 430 is usually for minimalist build without GPU... leaves some room for GPU :)
