V nice indeed.

EDIT: Though your powersupply doesn't really pack enough juice, If I were you I'd get a case without a PSU and get at least a 500w one, maybe 550w.

I see, Would it cost too terribly much to get the case then another power supply? I got the case for its silence and size

Antec r00l PSU's go, take a look at their line, and don't go for a cheap high wattage one, aim to spend at least 30/$55 on one.
