Looks ok, but whatever you do, don't use the power supply, included with the case. They are not reliable power supplies. I would suggest you for the Fortron (FSP) 400W. And why are you ordering from there? If you're in the US, shop at newegg.com....They got some of best prices, and the best service.

If I may suggest... saving up and buying something like this... very popular, and decent cooling to go with it...

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel, SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-WW Black/Silver Aluminum Bezel, SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail


the case PSU's are usually pretty bad, but cooler master has a good rep of providing good PSU's with there cases, so you might be able to get away with it for a while, until you got a new psu.
