Avoid Cooler Master's eXtreme and GX series psu, get a seasonic S12II 520, XFX Core 550, corsair tx550

A 550ti at $180 is a rip off. You can get an HD7850 1GB/2GB at that price and that is a way better card.

Your motherboard and SSD's are compatible (the video card will be compatible as well), however, you can get a better motherboard and SSD if you're spending around $1000 for only 4 parts.

I would also stay away from CoolerMaster for psus. Go with Seasonic. All of those parts should work fine together though.

Not necessarily. Although if you are in the market for a new cases, there are some cheap great cases like the Cooler Master HAF912/Elite 430/Elite 431, Corsair 200R/300R/400R, Antec 300/1100, Bitfenix Merc/Shinobi/Raider, NZXT 210. Those are great case for airl cooling and not very expensive.

The GPU is compatible with your motherboard, no problem on that.

Clarify something for me. What parts do you have now (I would suggest you list them)? Is that $1,000 for an entire build or just the 4 parts (motherboard, GPU, PSU, SSD)?

We could list better components afterwards if we know your entire system.
