Ok so i'm a little worried the gpu Radeon 6870 wont fit well in a RAIDMAX SMILODON Extreme Black.

also wondering if this psu Antec BP550 Plus 550W is good enough for this build (I've checked more than one psu calculator but its my first build and i'm kind of nervous about messing up.)

Full build:
case-RAIDMAX SMILODON Extreme Black
mobo-BIOSTAR TZ77B LGA 1155 Intel Z77
cpu-Intel Core i5-2400
gpu-XFX Radeon HD 6870
memory-CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB)
hdd-Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB
ssd-OCZ Onyx Series 32GB SATA II
drive-LITE-ON Black Blu-ray Combo Model
cpu cooler-ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
psu-Antec BP550 Plus 550W

That GPU will easily fit. An atx case will fit any GPU as long as you don't get low profile. Do you ever plan on crossfiring two 6870's? If you don't you are fine with that PSU. My bro runs 2 6950's with a 600w. If you ever do want to crossfire then I would suggest getting a 650w and a different motherboard. Your motherboard only has on PCIe slot. But if you wanna stick with just one GPU you're fine.

no i don't plan on crossfiring, i'll save that for a later build if i can ever do it.
