I recomend Antec, they come with good cases, and good PSU's - if you can get one for the price.

I would get this case:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...150-017&depa=1

And this power supply:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-912&depa=1

Antec makes great power supplies so this will be great for you and you won't have to worry about it at all.
Also that case is one of the highest rated cases on newegg. I have it and it is one of the best cases I've had. It is very inexpensive but has great cooling and a removable motherboard tray. It comes with two 92mm fans that are really quiet and push a good amount of air, I wasn't expecting such nice fans to come with such a cheap case. Don't be fooled by the picture, there is a spot for 1 120mm fan on the back of the case, and there is also a spot for an 80mm in the front. I set my two hard drives in directly in front of the 80mm front fan so it blows across them. Keeps the hard drives nice and cool.

Another good option is the Antec Sonata case on newegg which is just within your budget. But the power supply isn't quite 400 watts. I just don't think it has as good of cooling as the Maxtop signature case though. You can find the sonata here:
