First off, swap that power supply for a name brand, otherwise you run the risk to frying the entire system.
Second, id swap the 550 for a 560 Ti or 650 Ti, as they are a whole lot faster, and go with windows 7, as its still very good, windows 8 isn't much of an upgrade, and if you can afford it, go with an SSD, I have one and its amazing with windows 7.

What about this setup? Is the power supply still good? What do you think of this build? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/15aSX

I wouldn't trust a powersupply bundled with a case, as they are usually non-name brand and cheap.
Name brand would be corsair, antec, themaltake, seasonic, etc, might cost a bit more, but quality isn't cheap.
everything else is fine, though I would also see if you can find a bit better heatsink, as that heatsink seems a bit small for a 125w chip.

No idea what heatsink is. could you send me a link of a good chip. I added a good brand a couple extra changes. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/15boD
good? Give me link of a good chip (around same price please) does chip mean cpu or motherboard?

A heat sink is what cools the chip, or CPU.
Heres a better one - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
if that FX is a bit high on the price, id bring it down to the FX 6300, I have one, and its good in games, I have really no issues with it in games. Also, that power supply is decient, but still not exactly name brand, but if its all you can afford, its fine, as on newegg, it has a decient enough rating.
