Can I run an i7 2600K 3.40 GHZ?
With 550 Watt, I got an ATI HD 5670 1GB DDR5 and 4GB RAM.

Yes you can. Even though it depends on what all other stuff you have plugged into the rig. But it will still work as long as you don't use too many splitters to draw extra power for other peripherals.

it is far more dependent on which 550W psu than how many HDD's etc. given how little power they draw. But you are probably ok, let us know which one.
