Too much on the Case, ECS is a joke and there is no need for a cheap aftermarket cooler when Intel stock is good. Also, you could step up the GPU, and the G3258 wont OC unless its on Z97/87. Something along this -

Right now its in Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon, but I will probably just use Ubuntu once I get around to doing something with it, just because it is much easier to maintain and use.

The 270 has 1 6-pin PCI-e connector. 430w is plenty enough for that build.

Six cores is not necessary for gaming. All will work great on that board,including the GPU, but switch the 6600K for a 750K. Its the same CPU, just with no integrated GPU which you dont need because of the R9-270. Also, look into a 1TB drive. Games are getting larger and larger, so more stage is the key.

WD Blues and Seagate Barracuda's are the HDDS that most recommend. As for the GPU, all GTX 760's are good and the DCUii from ASUS is one of the best.

Nope. That amount of watts is under load. It will be OK. PSU's can sometimes put out about 50 more watts than what they are rated for, and I know for a fact that that one can. The PSU is fine. You will be fine. Nothing will blow up, and when idle you will only use about 200watts.
