I would suggest that you go with Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, PC Power & Cooling, or OCZ as PSU OEMs.

I have never heard of the case you list.

I would not go with a MATX mobo, but rather a full ATX.

1. It seems ok but i would recommend a bigger one for the hardware you have. In order to calculate how much power you should need go to and calculate how big power supply you need by giving info on your new pc seems to be fine

3.i believe it should be-your case is a mid tower so it should be good,only thing you should check is how long is the graphics card,that is the most common problem with the case sizes

also,i noticed that you want to buy a mATX motherboard which is a bit smaller than the standard ATX,and your case supports both,it's not a problem but usually ATX motherboards because of their bigger size have more expansion slots ;) 

all in all i'd say its all fine but try to wait for someone else to answer,just to maybe get another opinion
(and anyone who is reading this please answer with your toughts)

Alright now this is the new parts ive chosen.

1.Graphics card


1.Is the Case big enough to hold the Graphics card?
2.Is this all right parts to each other?
3. Does the Power supply have enough Watt to hold all of the parts?
Please let me know if there is something wrong.
