PSU:
What do you think of the Antec BP550 Plus ?

If it's not good what I should choose ?

CPU Cooling unit:
What should I go with the Antec Kuler 620 liquid cooling or Cooler master V6GT ?

PSU looks fine to me. Antec is a fairly reputable company.

As for cooling, I'm partial to the Corsair H50 myself. The V6GT is similar pricing for air cooling over water cooling, but I'm willing to bet both will have similar performance. So really it comes down to fan noise and ease of installation.

E8400 Stock; CoolerMaster H50; Asus P5Q Deluxe; G. Skill 2*2GB + 2*1GB PC2 1066; Sapphire 4850; WD 6400AAKS; Win 7 Pro; PCP&C Silencer 750W; Antec 300

I'd say Corsair or OCZ, myself. I've had a couple REALLY BAD experiences with Antec power supplies, one of which impersonated a flamethrower. No joke.

Phone rings.

"Nick! The computer is setting my wall on fire!"

"UNPLUG IT, PUT THE FIRE OUT, AND THEN TALK TO ME!"

That qualifies as the strangest service call I have EVER gotten.

These guys are in Cairo, and can apparently get Corsair stuff, but it is all special order, no clue on pricing.

Good luck! Egypt is OK on pre-built systems, but parts seem to be harder to find.
