Need some help with a mid-end gaming build. any suggestion is appreciated! :na:  everything is coming from newegg

P.S. I don't plan on overclocking anything!

Here's the core component:
1) CPU: i5-3570 @3.4 Ghz (someone please explain what does 3.8 Ghz turbo boost mean?) 215$
2) ASRock B75 PRO3-M Micro ATX Intel Motherboard 80$
3) Geforce 660 GTX super clocked 2GB 225$
4) CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600Mhz RAM 39$
5) Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" HD 70$
6) Rosewill CAPSTONE-550 550W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified 80$
7) COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 CASE 60$

The total is about 1200$ right now after 21.5 in LED monitor, CM rappid fire, razor deathadder, web cam, wireless adapter shipping etc.

Two Main questions
1) Does the system set up look good?
2) where can I cut cost a bit??

Change the PSU to Corsair HX 650 Gold + 80 / Seasonic 660 Gold + 80 . In case you need to upgrade to better cards or even adding new stuff to your rig .
