The case is very wide. Probably close to 2cm gap between the GPU and sidewall. Most GPUs should be fine, especially considering they tend to work crammed up next to each-other in PCIE slots.

I think 160mm is more like the TOTAL depth available down there in the PSU cage. With a 140mm PSU, you'll have about a 2cm gap remaining for the cables to route their way out of there. With a 160mm PSU, I think you'd be forced to mount it sticking out of the rear of the case (which is doable with spacers attached to the mounting flange).

i didnt see any cpu cooler in your list if you going for stock cooler, just run stock speeds but it still hot devil.gif, get a decent cooler air or water
i choose this mobo because has wifi and anything else its gigabyte tongue.gif
on ram smile.gif cheap but good enough
on gpu i still prefer 670 over 760 but 760 is a little bit cheaper , it your choice if you will spend extra on 670
case it just regular bitfenix prodigy and i find its cheaper than phenom, whatever is your like just my suggestion
i rather pick this over corsair rm series even its not modular, its a quiet psu sleepysmiley03.gif

edit all are in stock thumb.gif

Voltage regulation on that Antec EarthWatts is very average which is the reason why its so cheap

Its not bad its just not great either

650 watts is overkill by the way

With a 160mm PSU, I think you'd be forced to mount it sticking out of the rear of the case (which is doable with spacers attached to the mounting flange).

If you go to 03:00 in this video you can see him pushing a Corsair AX750 which is 160mm into the Prodigy, which has the same dimensions as the Phenom:

Sure it's tight, but it works.

Thank you for clarifying about the space between the GPU and the side of the case, I thought there was less space there than that so that's good news.
