For your 3D work the I7 is the better choice but a none K does not overclock. The Seasonic X750 is about the best PSU you can buy but looking at a rig with a single GPU then 750 watts are an overkill. For gaming the GTX460 1GB is superior to the GTX550Ti.
All components are compatible when you narrow down your choices.

get the i7-2600k, if you are going to get a hyper 212 then you should be able to overclock to ~4.5ghz. This will decrease 3d rendering time by a lot and you will be very happy :)
