Not really. However, the pictures that you posted aren't very helpful in answering it.

The requirements for the graphics card are here:

EVGA | Products 500 Series Family&sw=

(Minimum: 500W PSU, 30A on the +12V line, two 6 pin PCI-E power cables.)

Here's one PSU that's relatively inexpensive, and offers some margin:

Hmmm.. ok thanks. I completely have no idea how to determine of the PSU will fit the case. :l

I can't offer you perfect certainty, but it looks like an industry-standard ATX supply.

PCGuide - Ref - Power Supply - Form Factors

(86 X 150 mm, or roughly 3 3/8" X 4 7/8"). Do you have a ruler?

The most common incompatibility is with slimline cases, which use proprietary PSUs. You don't have one of those.

Some high-capacity ATX PSUs have length problems in some cases, but they still have the same cross section and bolt pattern.

Perhaps the people at Ankermann could eliminate any doubt, although you may not want to call them if you're about to violate your warranty.

Okay I got these in my shopping cart and ready to ship them next month:
EVGA Videokaart GeForce GTX560 SuperClocked Product Details bij MyCom
Corsair Voeding CX 600WATT V2 Product Details bij MyCom

Now I just need verification from one of you sevenforums pros if this is compatible with my current machine. By the way would this SSD work with my current machine too?

The 5.9 X 3.4" is the cross section. (These are the dimensions of the face at the rear of the case.) 5.5" is what I'd call the length (or depth). I can't read Dutch, but the length of the Corsair PSU is 140 mm (5.5"). It's the same size as your existing PSU.

The graphics card that you specify is 210 mm long. (That's not excessive. The longer cards are 260+ mm.) You may want to check whether it will fit your case. (I expect that it will.)

As regards the Intel SSD that you link to, it will work. It uses standard SATA data and power connections. You may need a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter to physically mount it in your case, if the case has no provision for 2.5" drives.

Regarding your concern about where all the wires go take a few photos of the existing setup before you disconnect anything. Then you can refer to them when you're connecting the new PSU.

Sorry to bother you guys so much, but what is the best SSD for gaming? I know it won't improve FPS I just want my games to load faster. I've seen Intel SSDs in action on Youtube but they don't really seem that fast. For the SSD I require maximum performance. Capacity, price or durability are not of a matter to me. Any suggestions?

Have a look here, but remember that lists like these are subjective, so you really need to do your own research - Google is a good place to start.
