Will this work together?

Hey guys, I'm planning to sell my notebook and build a decent gaming PC.
I'm pretty new to the hardware side of the computers, so please go easy on me. :)
I'm just interested if this will work, because I have 0% experience with building configs.

Motherboard: ASRock N68-GS3 UCC

Processor: AMD Phenom II X2 555 Boxed (probably will be overclocked to 4 cores)

RAM: 2x Kingmax DDR3 2GB 1333MHz

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB (ST3500418AS)

DVD: LG Electronics GH22NS40

GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD5570

PSU: Xilence XP550 550W

Case: Cooler Master Elite 430

Any advice or constructive criticism is appreciated :)

  1. That will all work together yes,
    but get ready for people shouting about psu choice :P
    fill in
    as completely as you can and we can see whats do-able for your budget and needs
    P.S., you cant overclock to four cores, you can try unlocking to four, but its not guarenteed stable,
    if you need a quad, buy a quad, if your happy with a dual that may unlock but will serve your needs ok as a dual, go for the xII you listed
  2. Yes, I meant unlocking, my bad. Also whats the problem with the PSU? :D

    17Amps on a 12v rail is not a psu I would want to Overclock on, or power a Graphics card
    it really wouldn't be a good idea :P
    stick with known good brands like Antec,corsair or similar, you really dont want to skimp on your psu at all :P
