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- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Sapphire Radeon HD7950 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-ti-...

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.
