You could drop down to a 500 watt psu as the 370 really only needs about 450 watts.

Have you already got the case?
I suggest you get something with PSU at bottom intake.

Also, it may worth to get a CPU heatsink.

Havent got it yet. What do you recommend?

Tray is usually CPU only. PIB usually stands for 'processor in box' that comes with a sticker and a heatsink in most cases.



Kidding aside it should perform okay for a nearing 5 year old platform and 4 year old CPU
Haha yeah thats what I thought. Besides, its way better thatn this: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/billaso123/saved/#view=sqRLrH

There are a lot on choice. My recommendation is look for something $50-60 with 2 - 3 case fan and dust filter + USB 3.0 front panel.
Then, check the reviews.

May be something like these?

There. Has 2 USB 3.0 and 2 coolers. I already have one cooler from my old pc, so I would have 3. It costs $117 here. A better one would cost around double. I will keep an eye out in case I get a better deal. What do you think?

Edit: I found a Cougar MX200 for around $64 (Wich is pretty cheap here). The thing is, I cant find it on Pcpartpicker, So I dont know if everything fits. This are the specs:
