Specs for Computer Case with PSU

I am looking for compatible "Computer Case with PSU" and all the "Internal connection cables" for the below system configuration. I got most used parts for my first system i'm building and now have to connect everything together and put in a case. However, I am not sure about the specs for the case, PSU and all connection cables I have to buy. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Motherboard:

INTEL DQ45CB MOTHERBOARD W/ CORE 2 DUO E8400 3.0GHZ + HEATSINK & I/O PLATE

RAM - DDR2 - 2 X 4 GB

HDD - WDC 250 GB Blue SATA

No Optical drive

For future reference: the top black spot is a PCI-E x16 slot, the white one below it is PCI. The other two black ones are PCI-E x4. The PCI slot is an old standard, so if buying a GPU get a PCI-E one. I recommend a Nvidia GeForce GT 210 or 620.

Also, the long L connecter on the power supply is SATA power, the motherboard connecter is wide and long and says motherboard or similar on it, and the CPU connecter says CPU on it. Oh yes, the old obsolete molex power connector is a resort only if you run out of SATA power connectors.

One last thing: SATA data is an L shape with 7 pins.

@pccheese - sorry I'm bit confused as I'm unaware of many keywords. Can you suggest any picture/guide to easily understand different types of cables I need and where it goes.

This is the definition of basic needs.

Any modern ATX size PSU will work.

Any modern ATX or micro ATX case will work.

A good cheap PSU, EVGA 430 W1, 80+ WHITE 430W Power Supply(100-W1-0430-KR)
