Rate my rig 1-10 or free to right any suggestions or right what did I buy wrong :) 
So here we go!

MOBO: Asus p8h77-m LE LGA 1155 (It is the h77 chip set that supports ivy bridge but not overclocking so there is no reason to buy the K series)
Processor: Intel core i5 3550 @3.3 Ghz T" at 3.7 Ghz ( I know this processor is weak but Gaming is not really necessary for a High processor)
Ram: 8 Gb (2x 4GB) corsair vengeance 1600 clock
Graphic card: Ati 6870 1gb DDR5 sapphire
And lastly
A corsair sata 3 SSD 60 GB for my windows software installed. I also got a 2 extra HDD for my games and other stuffs

So there we go! :) )

Any bad things that I buy feel to right Below :) 
Thank you for the time!!!! :D

all looks pretty decent to me. the 3550 is not 'weak' its a top-class CPU. What Case and PSU did you buy?

Cooler Master Extreme 650W? that decent enough. Not the top quality, but not a fireworks factory either

Well actually I already used that powersupply before this rig. Should I change PSU? I'm thinking of buying the coolermaster TX something something and it's 750 watts with 80 gold.. Umm I forgot that one too :) )

cooler master is basically a 2nd tier PSU maker. ok, but noy the best quality.

for your stats, I'd say you should be fine with a COrsair CX 500W PSU or a Seasonic S12 II 520W.. If you plan to Crossfire, a 650W from antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX will be plenty.

How much was your budget and how much did you spend. That way I can give you a fair rank.

Better PS include Seasonic, XFX, Antec HCG or TP series (most others are okay too), Corsair.

An i5-3450 would also work.

I prefer a larger SSD (~120 GB).

Personally, I wouldn't call an i5 based build a budget one.
