yes, the psu unites fit uniformly in cases. The more wattage that the psu can put out the more your system can use, even if there ismore than is needed it is alright.

Yeppers...will work better than the 350 watt no-name that comes with the case. It will fit, and you will have no probs.

Heck of a system but there's no need for it unless you have some heavy workstation stuff going on. It'll take a quite a few years before any game will need that kind of power.
Personally I'd get a case without a power supply and buy your own. That gives you a little bit more flexability with what you can get. Also make sure to get a case with plenty of fans ports. Heat is going to be a factor here. Definitely go with AT LEAST 400w if not 450w. With the add-ons and such you'll be demanding quite a bit. Other than that great system.
