Just wondering if my rig is any good, and how many watts for my PSU?

my rig: Antec eleven hundred case
intel core i5 2500 LGA 1155
Windows 7 64 bit
Asus Sata dvd/cd drive
3.5inch Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM HDD
EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
ASUS P8P67 DELUXE (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9

Please tell me if one of the parts are not compatible with another and if there are cheaper alternatives to the cd drive and the hdd.
How many watts do you guys think I need, I probably wont be doing any overclocking. please give me a link to a cheap psu that would fit my need, preferably newegg. I live in canada
thanks!

Looks like it should all work. A good 500 watt psu would power that up nicely. The video card isnt isnt the most powerful and you could actually get by on a good 450watt but go 500.

if you want a bit more power to handle a future upgrade, here is a 600watt for not much more

These links are to newegg usa, but you can get these on the canadian site too
