Looking for Advice on my Computer Build

Here is a list of my parts so far:
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3eY5j

All I have left to choose is a case. I would like a relatively small one compatible with all my parts. Any recommendations? (I would prefer higher quality case brand/materials)

Is my graphics card strong enough?

I also am wondering if my PSU is too strong. It's 650w, but a cheaper 550w version is also available, and I am contemplating going for it, as long as it doesn't affect the performance.

Finally, I plan to overclock this board, and I've heard that the Intel cooler that comes along isn't very strong... at all. Any suggestions?

Thanks, and if you have any other more cost efficient parts or setups, please comment them. I appreciate it a lot.
