If this is for gaming, the video card will be the bottleneck, if any. I have a similar build but i went with 850w corsair and the EVGA 560 Ti. I plan on getting a second 560 Ti and SLI'ing them a year or so from now.

So will the bottleneck affect my specs so much like for e.g: 50% or so?
Unfortunately my budget is lil bit limited, this's much i could afford
And yes this is for gaming but i don't plan to SLI this PC

The specs are fine. Your bottleneck will definitely be with the 550 Ti, which is lower than I would suggest for a dedicated gaming system.

Like others have said the GPU will be a bit of a bottleneck, especially for the i5-2500k

You could save a lot of money on the case and put the money towards a better GPU.
COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - $60

nandikaharahap, if you are able to customize this build then you might want to consider a couple of different choices so that you can upgrade the graphics card since this computer will be for gaming.

Drop the SSD for now. It loads your OS faster but doesn't do much for gaming. You can always add it later.

Get a 500 watt Corsair instead since you don't plan to SLI.

Drop the aftermarket CPU cooler if you don't plan to overclock the CPU. You can always add it later too but it shouldn't be necessary unless you overclock.

That should give you some money for a much better graphics card.

juniiflow, a CPU bottleneck is when the graphics card is so much faster than the CPU that the CPU can't feed the card fast enough to utilize the full potential of the card. A GPU bottleneck is when the CPU is so much faster than the card that the card can't process the graphics fast enough to utilize the full potential of the CPU. Obviously either one results in lost potential performance.

The OP is an example of a GPU bottleneck.

well if thats all you can afford, thats it. you just won't be able to play everytthing on high. but thats why i would build in some space to SLI another 550 Ti later on say a year from now if you have money. but thats just me.
