Toshiba does not make the best HDDs. Seagate drives are better at the same price: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...

For the case, these would be a better option:
Bitfenix Shinobi Black With Window: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...
Corsair 400r: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...
The Shinobi is cheaper and the 400R is a bit over.

Here would be a much better quality psu: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...
