Default First $800 Build Compatibility Confusion

Hi guys, this is my first build and through the power of the internet I have selected parts and finally made a build. I was just wondering if there is anything I have to change about the build or if anything is not compatible with each other. Should I change the PSU to 650W since there was a combo with my motherboard on newegg.ca(Newegg.ca - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!). I was planning on using this computer for gaming, editing videos, burning & copying dvds and photoshop. I'm gonna start purchasing tomorrow so I'm just really anxious and unsure since I'm a 15 year old kid with no idea on how to build a computer.
Thank you a lot. Intel Core i5-3450, Sapphire Radeon HD 7870, Cooler Master HAF 912 - System Build - PCPartPicker Canada

all looks look.

600w will be fine.

Only real recommended change would be the I5 3570k if you can afford it. (not much more.

I agree, you should go for the 3570k if you can. Otherwise that's a pretty nice build you have there...
