caviar Green drive isn't good as a boot drive should go for a caviar black and you could get a radeon 7770 oc for the same price about as a gtx 550 ti if im not mistaken.

^ this pretty much sums it up

You don't need a 600W psu. If you could find some cheaper 500W like the corsair CX500, that's more than enough. Plus the extra buck could get you a GTX650ti

The recommended psu wattage for 7770 is 430 so you could lower it to 500.

since you are taking a Z77 chipset mainboard you can get a 3rd gen i3 processor too.
also it is a good idea to a ssd for boot drive since the wd green drive is not that fast.
