Help required - building a new gaming PC

Hey guys, after lots of consideration I have finalized this spec for my new gaming rig. Everything is fine. My specs are
Intel core i5 4570
Nvidia GTX 760
Corsair Vengeance 2x8 GB RAM
MSI B85M G43 mobo
Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD (no SSD)
Corsair VS550 550 W PSU

Everything is in budget.
Please see if everything is compatible or not.
Please don't say no. I have finalized this PC after lots of research and sacrifice. Thanks in advance.

I tend to agree but you are on a tight budget but the PSU is for sure one area I'll never skimp on. I like 750+ watt but I also think your choice will work just don't SLi another card or add ten HDD's.

Nice upgrade as all PSU's will degrade about 1-5% each year....always better to have reserves !
