Would appreciate opinions on my first build

Hi guys, I'm putting together my first build and would really appreciate your opinions :) I'm thinking of going with this build http://pcpartpicker.com/list/WQybLD but not entirely sure about the motherboard, psu and case. I'm not going to overclock anything so I guess the H170m is enough? Also, 550W psu for this build should be sufficient, right? Lastly, the reviews for this case seem favorable, but should I invest more in it? Thanks in advance!
