I am in need of setting up 2 pcs for gaming. Mostly games like World of Warcraft hoping to be able to run like close to ultra-settings if possible. One of the concerns I have is about the PSU I chose. I will probably be using this PC for about a year till I upgrade so if possible I would like 600-700 watt for hopefully not that much.

This is the PSU I was looking at not sure about how good well it will run.
Power Supply: Antec BP550 Plus 550W ($54.99 after rebate @ Newegg)

One will have a CPU, Mobo, Ram, and OS from a friend hopefully. Hard drives are slow and low on space so wanting to upgrade them.

These are the parts I have in mind hoping to use some of the parts in a future build so if possible I would like some advice. Thank you in advance for the help.

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Microcenter)
Motherboard: GA-78LMT-S2P Socket AM3+ (Free with CPU @ Microcenter)
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB ($53.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB ($89.99 @ Microcenter)
Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7770 ($99.99 after rebate @ Newegg)
Case: HAF 912 ($59.99 @ Newegg)
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium OEM ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Monitor: ASUS VH236H Black 23" ($149.99 after rebate @ Newegg)
Keyboard: Razer BlackWidow (99.99 @ Newegg)

That PSU is fine and more than sufficient for a sys with a 7770
