I just got my 660ti and this psu but haven't opened it yet because i am not sure if this PSU will be able to power the card.

Its an OCZ Stealthstream 600w-

Your choice of case is excellent, it's a great gaming case for the price.

However, there's a few things I would like you to change; PSU and GPU.

XFX Core Edition 550w PSU -

Sapphire Radeon HD7950 -

GTX660 Ti isn't worth the cost considering how badly the memory interface bottlenecks it. Once you crank up settings such as MSAA or AF, your FPS will drop DRAMATICALLY.

Those benches are a great example.

Ill get either that PSU or the corsair cx500 or cx600, and abotut the graphics, I got that graphics instead of the 7950 because it came with a free borderlands 2 download.

Ahh, understandable :)  $60 value for free...that's hard to resist, I admit.

Actually, the CX500 would be a better value for you. The GTX660 Ti doesn't use much power AT ALL so you can feel comfortable with overclocking if you go with a CX500 as well.
