This is what I'm getting. My goal is to have a pc that will max everything for the next few years, and I plan on grabbing another 780 later down the road. My question to the pros: Is there anything you would add or change to this build? Please let me know. I'm buying parts today!

You don't need 16GB of RAM for gaming; drop it down to 8GB.

I would go with a different SSD, ADATA doesn't particularly make the fastest, nor the most reliable SSDs. Samsung Pro/Evo would do nicely.

If you plan on SLI-ing in the future, go with a HX850 or AX860 or higher. The 750 is below what is recommend, and it's wasted money if you'll need to upgrade it down the line.

Ok, I'll change the ssd and psu but i really want 16gb for future expansion. Right now i have a 8gb rig and its getting close to its limits, so yeah. Any other suggestions?
