I would like to know if this build is compatible since I'm getting it.

Logisys PS550E12 550W
Seagate Barracude ST31000524AS
Lite-On DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHas124-04 - OEM
HIS H785F1G2M Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit
Arctic Silver 5 High-Density AS5-3.5G - OEM
G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866
MSI Z77A-G41 LGA 1155 Intel Z77
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz

Is this all compatible?

Don't waste your money on 16gb of 1866, just get 8gb of 1600 c9, to be honest you won't notice a different unless you are really really and I mean literally running many windows at once, 8gb is suffice. Use that cash to buy a hd7870 its better. Get one asus 7870 at ncix, its on sale at $210 after mir.

Don't bother getting an i5-3570k then get a 7850. O_O

How can you possibly accuse me of being evil... :p .

It is all compatible, but upon a closer look at that PSU, there is much to be desired.
Much better unit that after a rebate is of similar cost.
