For $30 more you could upgrade the cpu to the fx 8120. If you were to get an r9 270, you could just overclock it to the same performance level of the 270x. I wouldn't get that case/psu combo. I would get a case you like and a reliable psu like something that's 80+ certified. If you're going to be using this on a wifi network, you're going to need a wireless network adapter. I'm going to assume you already have the HDD and that's why there's no price listed.
