Are these parts adequate for my new custom-made PC?

Hello, all. I am constructing a new gaming PC by hand-picking parts and not buying a pre-built rig. I have compiled a list of parts that I currently plan on purchasing:

*Nvidia Geforce GTX 550 Ti
*1 500GB HDD
Corsair Obsidian Series 650D case
ASRock Z77 MoBo
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W power supply
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB RAM
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD
(*Carrying over from current rig)

Total cost: $732.94, well within my range
So, is the combined price worth it (i.e. would it be more beneficial to get a pre-built PC like this one or this one)? I've done quite a bit of research myself, but I have doubts. If there's a cheaper alternative that will still get me the power I'm looking for, then I'm all for it. I'd love to hear your thoughts/opinions on my current selection.
The debate is over.
