Is everything in this build compatible?

I'm just about to buy all the components for my new pc.
R.I.P my old gaming pc.
I think it's all good but i'm not too sure about the 450w PSU with the gtx650ti.
I know XFX psu's are made by seasonic and are very reliable but i don't know if it's worth upgrading to a 500w to be safe.
Also, i'm not sure if the case is any good or if the motherboard is any good.
Here's the complete list of components.

Thanks in advance.

  1. id get the 550w.

    and for the motherboard, get a h77 chipset board. you arent overclocking anyways

    I thought 550w was a bit much for a 650ti, would a corsair 500w builder series be OK.
    Also the Z77 is on sale so is around the same price as a H77
  3. the corsair builder 500w can only provide around 400w from what i know.

    its nice to have some headroom. and also, if a 7850 is cheaper or is the same price, get that instead

    The 7850 is about £30 more than the 650ti

    What about this PSU then, Antec are a good brand and should give me a bit more breathing room.

    heres the 7850. it performs quite a bit better than the 650ti in some games and performs the same in bf3

    the antec unit is basically a less efficient version of the xfx 550w. its ok for the most part
