Default Getting a new Case

So i sold my CM 690 case with the 7 fans that was in there for $60. I only paid about $20 for the case, and $15 for the fans, so i made about $25 profit.
The case i am looking at is the Smilodon Case, and i dont know if its good or not. It comes with an 500W PSU for the price of $100 not including tax.
Is the case good?
hows the PSU? is it reliable?
i think its made by Raidmax.
I am trying to find a case and PSU, both for about $100 total.
Thanks in advance.

Edit, i think its this PSU thats bundled

or should i go with this?
NZXT Alpha
for $60
and the Cooler master 500W
for $55.
its a bit more, but the PSU is better, and the case still looks kind of nice.
i am trying to find one with transparent side panel.

This is what i am trying to build
XFX 680i LT SLI mobo
Intel E7200
eVGA 8800GT
1 DVD Drive
certain fans depending on case
1 sound card (undecided)

some might change depending on date of purchase.
I will be buying these at microcenter, i will not be ordering from newegg because it takes awhile to ship, and if something goes wrong, i would have to go through 2 weeks without it waiting for an RMA.
in the end, i would save myself a headache and time, though it might cost me about $50+ more.
