Default Check over this budget build please.

Hey guys, long story shot someone is buying my uncel some computer parts of his choice and i was just wondering if the ones listed below would work together. He just needs a few parts as he has the rest so i would like your comments. If it can go cheaper that would be great as well. He cant spend to much.

NCIX OC Bundle Deal MSI P67A-GD65 P67 SLI CrossFireX Motherboard & Intel 2500K Unlocked Processor

G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Memory

OCZ FATAL1TY 550W ATX12V 20/24PIN Active PFC ATX Modular Power Supply 120MM Fan 80PLU *IR-$15*

MSI GeForce GTX 460 Fermi Cyclone OC 725MHZ 768MB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini-HDMI DX11 PCI-E Video Card

What do you guys think? Total is 635$ before tax.

I won't recommend a OCZ PSU, I had one died on me. The power supplies Dan suggested are more reliable than the OCZ.

+1 for another brand of psu, OCZ do good stuff but PSU is not of them.
