Well that is on the short side, really meant for atom/via boards. Better use a 90W+ model: Review
During boot and high loads the amps will be higher than the rated capacity, personally would get pico-SPU of Ebay for 90/120W.
Better to get the: Antec ISK 300-150

Better get a dual-core 240/250 if you want to do video 1080P without DXVA/VPAU, this also gives lower idle power consumption.

What are you going to use it for?

Stock TDP of Sempron 140 is 45W, so I'd say no to that. That PSU is more for an Intel Atom or AMD Brazos build.

This case for $60 shipped/$45 AR looks like a pretty good choice.

Get this RAM [$44, $29 after rebate] (since with generic memory you should be getting as cheap as possible, and pretty much all SODIMMs are generic anyway; 1066 CL7 vs 1333 CL9 makes no difference), of course if you don't mind rebates. I personally find Patriot's rebate return time to be fairly quick. $34 for 2x2 generics is pretty fair.

there is a case that comes with a 150w psu and people are running the dual core i5 with that.
