No incompatibilities, and you can actually get by with a somewhat smaller capacity PSU to save a bit.

it seems in newegg the i5-3470, which is better than the i5-3450, is even less expensive now and by far more powerful that and consumes less watts than the amd cpu, and the gfx card is much more powerful than the 550ti.

wow this has me excited.. a more powerful computer for a cheaper price.. i have never dealt with intel processors before, only AMD.. i heard AMD was less powerful then intel but was more durable? not sure but i will definitely switch to intel if you highly recomend it.. same with radeon video cards, never used them, only used nvidia and evga cards.. so the power supply i picked was too powerful? i was looking for a cheap but powerful one haha.. is the power supply you picked powerful enough for certain? i only ask because my computer is atleast 6 years old and it has a 450w PSU.. im worried about heat also, should i get more fans or what? it looks like im drifting towards the configuration you recommended
