What's the total of those parts? How much cash is left in your budget?

I would go with this PSU
Scan.co.uk: Corsair Enthusiast TX V2 CMPSU-650TXV2UK 650W Power Supply (PSU)

this GPU
Scan.co.uk: Palit 1536MB GeForce GTX 580 GDDR5 NVIDIA Graphics Card - NE5X580010CB

and that leaves you 44.36 for a keyboard.

I missed the case, that sort of screws with my selections based on your budget.

For the most part I find cases to be a personal choice. With a little Dremel work almost any case can be made wire management friendly.
