There's only a few brands of power supplies you should build with. Here's an ITX system I threw together.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($199.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Motherboard: ASRock H81M-ITX Mini ITX LGA1150 Motherboard ($54.00 @ Newegg)
Memory: Kingston Blu Red Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($71.88 @ NCIX US)
Storage: Mushkin Chronos 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($64.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Antec ISK600 Mini ITX Tower Case ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: XFX 550W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($59.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $490.83
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

Raidmax power supplies... Never.

Don't look at PSU brand, look at the OEM. The older Superflowers are mediocre as are the lower-end Enermax. Rosewill power supplies aren't that good either, other than a select few (notably the Rosewill Lightning series).

The case looks interesting, but I am curious if you can throw in a dedicated GPU and upgrade the PSU?
Like will it fit and/or have decent cooling?

It can fit cards up to 12.5" long and has pretty good cooling for an ITX case.
