IMO you can get a better gfx card than that.

Also, don't get a case with a PSU. The psu's that come with cases are usually extremely crap. Hang on, I'll find you a better one.

GFX Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16814102770R
Case:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811233033 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811147075
PSU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182199
