Windows 7: Case upgrade advice needed

I'd recomend this case Corsair Carbide Series 500R Black Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Newegg.com
For a mid sized case it has tonnes of room inside, Not much less than the 600t internally but not as much space behind the motherboard tray. It does have led's in the fans but it also has a on off switch. Newegg are giving a $20 rebate too.

Realized I have a Galaxy GeForce 210 since 12.24.11 never installed it.
Spec's require min. of 300 PSU.
If I add it to this machine would there be much of an improvement ?

linnemeyerhere,
Thank's for the quick reply.
What would be a modestly priced PSU for what I intend to assemble ?

Can the Ultra X4 PSU be installed upside down safely in a case with a bottom air intake with a filter ?

No worries it works in either orientation and also comes with a nice rubber gasket to keep it even quieter!

Yes, I also saw the gasket. Seems pricey but the warranty easily negates it.

Kinda torn between the Fractal Design Define R4 Case and the
Antec P280 Black Case.

Anyone have pro's or con's for either one ? or own either ?
