(Silent) PSU/general advice

Hey there!

I think I'm almost ready to order my parts for a new rig I want to build, but I thought it would be wise to check with you guys first, since it is my first build.

Problem is: I'm not sure what PSU to pick. I want the computer to be silent so all the parts I've got now should be pretty silent (please correct me if I'm wrong). I'm just not sure how much power I'll need in my psu, and which psu would be quiet enough. I would like to have the possibility to add another 650Ti later, so that's something to consider.

Here's a link to all the parts I've picked so far:

Please give your critical opinion on what I've got so far. Any advice is more than welcome. I won't be gaming that much with this build, but I would like to be able to play games at a decent quality (60fps, settings don't have to be maxed out) in 1080p. I will be hooking up three monitors to it as well (2x 19" and 1x 23"). I think I'll be using it primarily for Photoshop and just general usage. I am kind of a multitasker though, I like to have a lot of programs open at once. I want this computer to be snappy and silent!

I hope this is enough info for you to help me out. Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
