i love the look of the cases thats what im looking for.

The Audigen I linked has a 150w psu, plenty for what you are looking for.

I have the Origen M10 which comes with a 150W power brick. I have an i3-2100, an HD 6570 graphics card, blu ray, ssd etc etc. I can load up furmark and intel burn test at the same time, max load on both, and have no issues. 150W is more than enough for what you're looking to do.

It will peak at around 130w:

You have to think about heat output in smaller cases carefully. With an internal PSU, you're looking at around 150w+ of waste heat to manage.
