Really good parts, top end stuff, powered by an average power supply. You can get a real good one to match the rest of the parts for less than £20 more, e.g. XFX, Antec, Super Flower.

I agree, my only recommendation would be about the PSU. Seems great to me otherwise!

Is 550 watts enough to cover this build ?

No problem, especially with a good quality supply. If you intend to SLI in the future, however, might be an idea to get a 750 watter now.

It was just the clock speed for the price beats most in the same price range. What would you recommend instead ?

MSI TwinFrozr is good and quiet and cool, should be easy to overclock some more if you want. Gigabyte should fit in that case- three fans, big and bad.
