I'm still working out the components. Here is the original ORION Gaming PC Build components:

FX-8320 CPU: http://goo.gl/NRYIsJ
MSI 760GMA-P34: http://goo.gl/K6UtCX
Crucial Ballistix 8GB (4x2): http://goo.gl/hQ5acw
Hitachi 1TB Hard Drive: http://goo.gl/0EKIFh
Sapphire R9 270X: http://goo.gl/qKnQFF
Cougar Spike PC Case: http://goo.gl/5FWoBc
EVGA 500W Bronze PSU: http://goo.gl/mQVJ5p

I'm going to my local hardware store named Fry's Electronics. They have some good-looking parts I can use.

EDIT: Eh, screw buying the RAM from Amazon. I fear Amazon will sell the credentials to some black market. Very sneaky buisness practices.

RAM: I made a search for "8gb ram ddr3" in the search bar.
Note that there are some results for PC's and tablets. Ignore those, please.

SO I found a better-looking case, it can fit the motherboard quite well.

(note: i'm in the americas, more specifically Texas.)

I also found a couple 500w power supplies.

LEPA N Series N500-SA 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Thermaltake TR2 500W ATX12V V2.3 Power Supply with Cable Management Optimized
http://www.frys.com/product/6740055?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

Please help me make the decision.

I can tell you that the TR2 is the better choice, being better in power provisions and overall features, but what is your problem? Is choosing the power supply the only problem or are you looking for more varying answers?
