Default My New Computer

OK well i'm almost done with my new computer, the necessities are already had but I have some cheap parts just to get the comp running. So what I need is a good PSU, a good case, and a good video card. I will probably get most of this with my christmas money, any suggestions?

Do you think this is a good, cheap PSU

PSU

Case?

Well I might be trying newer games, also I don't want to have to upgrade the GPU for a while.

The case is good, however, the Rosewill sucks. I'd recommend you to spend a little more for this one:

Little more expensive, but FAR better.
