I was just wondering if all these are compatible or if there will be any bottlenecks so I'm open to suggestions.
I'll be mainly using the PC for gaming and I would like to do some do some OCing in the future.

ASUS P8P67-M PRO B3 Revision
Intel i5 2500k
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 550 Ti
WD Caviar Black 1 TB - 600 MBps - 7200 rpm
G-Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333Mhz Ripjaws Memory Kit CL8 (8-8-8-21) 1.5V

...Also is this PSU enough Corsair 500W CX V2 PSU

More about : compatible

Yes, it does, but seemingly I wouldn't go so cheap on a PSU. Get an OCZ, Antec or Corsair 80Plus 600W PSU, and OCZ ModXStream 600W would be your best bet, it's modular too.

I think that psu is adequate personally. But if you're planning on gaming the graphics card will be the component limiting your capability, the 2500k is proportionally miles ahead of it.

that psu is fine, no worries.

As absorber says your graphic card is limiting your capabilities.. If you can afford few more try HD6850.. CX500 is fine..

I would not skimp on the GPU ever. Get a Radeon 6870 as it is much better.
