Default grabbing new case, vid, and psu

ok this is what i HAVE:

Soltek K8T800pro
AMD64 3000+
320 STAT HDD
120 SATA HDD
RADEON 9550



i cant find the name of my case yet..but it has blue LED lights infront, and a temperature montior in front. it is in F not C.

anywho according from what CalcProgrammer1 said, my PSU is going to die soon. so i'm gona get another one. i dont like my old case anymore, so i should grab a new one too.

this is what i'm planning to get:
Silverstone Element ST50EF-PLUS 500W ATX12V 24PIN Power Supply W/120MM Fan Active PFC 80PLUS RoHS
NCIX.com - Buy Silverstone Element ST50EF-PLUS 500W ATX12V 24PIN Power Supply W/120MM Fan Active PFC 80PLUS RoHS - ST50EF-PLUS In Canada.

(a lotta good customer review feedback, so i think this sound be fine right?)

Antec NINE HUNDRED Black Tower Case (NO PSU)
CS-ANTEC-900

NCIX.com - Buy Antec Nine Hundred Mid Tower Gamer Case 900 ATX 9 Drive Bay No PS Top USB2.0 1394 Audio - NINE HUNDRED In Canada.

(this one got a LOTTA good customer feedback and i found a lower price at 109$$ not 120.

dont think i'm gona get a new VIDEO CARD YET.


What do you guys think? i dont want to get new mobo and **** yet. cause this comp i'm using is gona be use for only d/ling, and burning/ and basic word in the future. so when i get a new comp with mobo and ****, gona chang eback to the old case and just get a "OK" PSU for it.

Might i recommend a cheaper store?
Canada Computers - Cases > Mid Towers : Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Ultimate Gamer Case.
In my opion i don't think you will need that expensive of case for a computer like that.
For your computer, you don't need a power supply that good
Canada Computers - Power Supplies/Management > Desktop Power Supplies : Thermaltake Litepower 400W Power Supply (W0162RU).
something like this is more than enough, i have a simialr system to yours and im only using a 350watt power supply that came with the case. Still works after all these years.
