Is this 550w PSU enough for this build/ Is this a good build?

The PSU is at the top of the picture (OCZ Fatal1ty)

This is my first build ever, and I have had a friend who is into building them help me (He's probably spent over $3000 on his...)

I on the other hand, don't need those specs, and had around a $600 budget. This build after rebates brings me to $587, which I am happy with.

Now to the question.. Will that OCZ Fatal1ty PSU give me enough watts for my needs? The reason I chose it it because I chose an AMD processor, and because I get a $25 rebate with that PSU.

What do you think of my final build?

Any suggestions/feedback is welcome.
Thanks! :bounce:

That is a really good build, but I suggest a better PSU like the XFX Core Edition PRO550W (P1-550S-XXB9) 550W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply @ $70.

I cant hear it over my case fans... I just got that same graphics card today actually and its somewhat loud i can hear it over my case fans. Its not that annoying to me but just letting you know.
