Well first of all it is a good setup.

Power supply is important, specially if you plan on over clocking. I Don't think you planing on doing that so 500W will do the trick.
Basic things you need to know about PSU.
Recommended Energy-Efficien 80+ PSU
Make sure it silent, and the cables are long. If you have the budget, get PSU with modular cables. You can find model of PSU you need and read reviews on site: www.newegg.com . I can recommend a model if you will tell me your budged.
The two other things are case and heat sink if i am not mistaking.
Heat think, you can take a look at new toms article:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/lga-1156-heatsink,2535.html
For case recommendation, you will have to tell me your budget, and some guide lines.

Here is a good cheap power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005

When you are looking for a power supply I would suggest against a modular because each connection makes more resistance and decreases efficiency. They also cost a lot more. Many people buy them so that they have fewer wires in their case to try to increase air flow, but if you manage your wires correctly you don’t have to worry about it.

As far as a case it is hard to say. Case is more about your style. There are so many cases that have good airflow and look fine. If you list a few that you like the look of we can help you narrow your options.

the power supply is the best deal your gonna get this year because its on sale for the price of a 550w psu. if your not sure, go look at the prices of the other northQ power supplies :sol:

the case is a full tower ATX but you will need to buy another 120MM fan for the back. you can fit 11" cards in here too :D

It is the same i know. and it well worth the price....I have my rig based on it.
If money is not important he better use it 4 other things in his build.
Second GPU, storage, Cooler, cool keyboard etc.....
