Most all the new PSUs are universal, they come with 24 pin motherboard connectors and you can detach 4 off the end to make it a 20 pin for backwards compatibility.

They also come with 8 pin processor power cables of which you can detach 4 off the end to make it a 4 pin for backwards compatibility.

I am 99% sure that the GS 600 is standard in this manner. I can't guarantee you that, though. You would be wise to try to research that before you buy it.

On a separate note, I would not try to upgrade your core components one at a time (motherboard, processor, and RAM). These should always be bought together when possible.

Usually, it is the case that if you buy a new one of any of the three, the other two old things won't work with the new thing.

Looks fine to me, though the i5-3450 is more popular than the i5-3550.

The 3570k is more popular than either one, because it allows performance settings to be changed in the BIOS, but for the people that don't care about that most of them take the 3450 since it costs less (usually) and has nearly the same performance.

I am also not a big fan of Corsair RAM, Crucial and Kingston generally make RAM that is more likely to work and work well.
