Hey guys, I'm a long time subscriber on Youtube and just joined the website. I'm not very tech or mechanically skilled however I want to work on this and decided to build my own PC by myself. I'm a college student with a $750 budget the lower on the budget on the less ramens I have to eat! But anyways I had a family friend build a PC for me back in 2008, if possible there are a few parts I'd like to cannibalize from it to lessen the cost and get better parts.
I have a mouse/keyboard my monitor is a LCD Acer 1080 TV, so the max res is already set. I play some games and will be doing school work on it as well. Favorite games would be Skyrim, Fallout NV, Civ 5 and Xcom EU. Hope to atleast play these on highest settings.
These are the part's I'd like to use if possible, if it's stupid to reuse any please let me know I wont!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139001 - PSU, it was great back in the day I never even came close to reaching max at all on it I have a ATI 4850 on it right now.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147105 - This is the case, not sure if I should replace it the fans still work, it does the job.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148335 - I have two of these in my current computer, the 2nd one I've literally never used. I don't keep many files on my computer I guess. Hoping to use this as my memory drive but get a SSD as for windows/games.
The below build assumes I can reuse those parts. I will also be making all purchases through Amazon, sorry its my only line of credit!
These are the parts I'm looking at I scared the PSU cant handle it:
If this build sucks or is stupid please show me a better one or tell me what to replace. Thanks guys!
