Is this a good build

Hello! This is going to be my first time building a computer here is my buildhttp://pcpartpicker.com/p/2Y1Ue

I was wondering if this is all compatible
Will my build fit into my case?
What is a good heat-sink fan for my build that would fit in my case and is under 25ish dollars( i dont plan on over-clocking, but i want to play games such as BF4).
Also i might switch out the evga gtx 660 for this cardhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130967&cm_sp=DailyDeal-_-14-130-967-_-Product ( not sure if the link works but it is a evga gtx 660 it has a different body kit it looks like thos).

    550w is not enough for that.

    However getting a single powerful graphics card is a better idea.

    This is what I would do :

    Better single GPU. And a better chassis.
