Psu: OCZ 550W, Fatal1ty Series Power Supply

I live in a small country, so prices drop VERY slowly and are much higher compared to US. My main concern is about power supply, this is my first sys build and I have readed articles about choosing psu, but do not feel confident about my choice. Any bottlenecks in this build? In general, I want quality then price/performance. Final question, I'm currently building custom case, if it fails what should I choose Antec 900 or HAF 922?

Thank you,
Harry.

1. Get better PSU from Corsair or Antec...I know this gonna cost you a little more, but trust me on this one. 550W is not enough for 2xHD5770. Get 650 or 750W.
2. Antec 900 or Coolermaster HAF922 is good but perhaps a little expensive..you might also want to consider Antec 300 or Coolermaster CM690.
3. Get 4GB RAM.

Samsung F3 drives are the fastest drives besides SSDs. According to many reviews, they are quite reliable as well. They are even faster than the new SATA 6 gb/s Western Digital drives.

Correction :
F3 is the fastest normal 7200rpm HDD.
WD 10k Raptors are still faster.
