It is showing you the bare minimum needed to run it, does not count in over clocking. If you OC the CPU, RAM and video card you will need more power available. Give yourself a buffer, you don't want to be replacing the PSU a year from now because you want to add something new to the system and you don't have enough power. a 550w would be good.

 

The mail in rebates are not bad, now days they normally issue you a prepaid gift card, usually American Express.

the fx6300 was a better option ( for your money)  and it wouldnt bottleneck the gtx 660

dont like the case, there are so many nice cases on the 40 range like the cooler master N200 mini tower (you picked a micro atx),

which you could reuse with great potential.

Superfreak - He was asking for build advice, not what you like in his case. Maybe he chose that case because he liked it vs. pricing or more. That case he picked will support ATX and Micro ATX. He was mostly asking for advice on the other hardware which he got a lot of good-great advice on. Cases are just aesthetics.
