500-700 USD gaming build

This is what I came up with (haven't bought anything since 2008 so a friend helped me out).

Need to lower the price (mainly by changing a case and a cooler) and the motherboard has some pretty poor average reviews so I'm not sold on it.

Also would a 500W PSU cope with this?

Thanks in advance.

It most likely would, but I wouldn't risk it..

If you want to get it under 700 without rebates and that stuff:
