For your own sake, go with a better PSU option. More watts doesn't mean better. Name brand means quality in the PC world most times. In PSUs, this is always. Here's a kick ass PSU in your budget: Newegg.com - CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

And you can get a much nicer PC case then that for that money. Here: Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Elite RC-310-BWN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

And I just saw that you included a sound card. No need. The MSI mobo you picked has 5.1 channel audio. Unless you're doing high quality surround sound, like a 500 dollar logitech system, I don't see a need for a dedicated sound card when you have one on your motherboard
Desktop: AMD Phenom II 840 X4 @ 3.7Ghz // Asus Sabertooth 990FX // CM HAF 932 // XFX HD 5770 // 8GB Corsair Vengeance @1600 + 8GB G.skill Sniper @ 1600mhz (C9) // Cooler Master 600W // Zalman CNPS9900 // Sidewinder x8
Laptop: Dell Vostro 3555 // AMD A6-3400 1.4Ghz x4 w/ 6520 // 500GB HDD // 4GB Ram upgrading to 8GB soon // Backlit Spillproof Keyboard
