Hi,
i want to make a new pc with these:
CPU: Intel Core i5 4670k
VGA: Asus GTX-660 DirectCU II OC edition 2Gb (already bought)
Motherboard: ASRock Z87M Extreme4
RAM: Kingmax DDR3 1600MHz 4GB (2x4 GB) (already bought)
CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
PSU: XFX ProSeries 550w

Everything looks compatible. But if you're getting the 660 for around $200 USD, I would grab a 760 instead.

You can overclock your CPU: Z-series motherboard, paired with an unlocked CPU.

You can overclock your GPU, use EVGA Precision X or MSI Afterburner
I would grab a 650-750w PSU if you are looking to overclock. Stick to Corsair or Seasonic.

If you want to overclock reliably you will need a better motherboard and better power supply that is more stable.

Its enough, but the CX is low cost and NOT meant for OCing, if you DON'T want to OC, then that CX is fine.

Keep in mind that the CX does NOT deliver its full 500 w.

I want to OC my cpu, so i need more than 600watt? but i dont want to pay more than the Corsair 500W
You think Corsair VS650 CP-9020051 is a good psu for my system?
People says that VS series are bad.

You dont need more wattage, you need a more stable PSU if you want to OC.

You would need an extreme4 for SLI. They make a full atx version. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I would probably still go with a 3570k and z77 extreme4. It is significantly cheaper combo right now.
