CiT seems like a terrible PSU choice going by the looks of it. CD drive is fine, The hard drive is so small you wont be able to fit anything on it. Id check out some 500 or 1tb models from Seagate or Western Digital. RAM is good, Im thinking that you may want a newer gen GPU but youre not gaming are you?
 
That card won't play any modern games at all. Do not get a z77 board. WAY too much for a i3. Get a $50 or $60 b75 board and an hd7770. That should get you medium settings in most modern games and high settings on all older games.
