Hey everybody, I'm building a simple box for mostly productivity apps, watching movies, and some occasional light gaming such as with World of Warcraft. I want to make sure that my prospective build is ok. I welcome any other comments or suggestions.

These items total $528 on Newegg, including shipping. Price is a major concern, but I'll spring for more if it's really worth it. There are a couple things I want to make sure of:
1) The power supply (350W) is enough.
2) All of this fits into the case, which is a largish microATX case.
3) There will be little to no noise when watching movies.
Thanks for any suggestions!
