Intel Core i3-3225 3.4GHz
Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H

ZOTAC nVidia GeForce GTX560 Ti 1 GB DDR5-ZT-50306-10M
WD1003FZEX

Corsair Vengeance Blue 8 GB (2X4 GB) PC3-12800 1600mHz

I'm kind of new to this, want to save up to build a new computer (budget $550 or less,gaming pc,etc)

I have the OS, etc. And if you guys can recommend any other things to buy/not to buy and recommend a PSU that is enough without the graphics card, and with the graphics card that would be great. I think I can wait without the graphics card for a while, because the CPU already comes with HD-4000 which is good enough. Not a super hardcore gamer (MW3,LoL,Sims 3, NFS,etc)

:)

Your CPU is 55W, the 560Ti is 170W and figure 100W for the MB with everything else. So with these numbers you can figure what you need depending on the stuff you have. Always try to add at least 20% for overhead also.

So for everything a 400-450W should give you plenty of power...

Just tried it, kind of buggy wasn't able to choose the CPU model, only the brand. Thanks for the recommendation :)
