I can't give much info in terms of cost, but the computer you have chosen will perform very well, and give you some upgrading headroom down the road. I have an i3-2100 in my server right now, and it runs very well for the cost.

It isn't just the wattage you need to be concerned with. It's the quality of the PSU. I'm not familiar with that brand, which leads me to think it is a lesser known, generic type. I very good quality 500W PSU should work, but there's no harm in going a little higher in wattage.

Google says that system uses maybe 150 watts at idle and under 300 watts with a heavy load.

500 is plenty of watts. I have no idea if that Chieftec PSU is good, bad, or indifferent.

Get a Seasonic, XFX, or Corsair if you are concerned about it.
