  1. 850w Psu. You are missing RAM and a dvd drive.
  2. Case? Check out an NZXT Phenom 630.

    Also, 16GB or RAM 2x8 or 4x4 with 2x8 being preferred. Corsair is usually what I choose.

    You don't need all of those fans if you get the case I mentioned. It comes with 3 200mm fans. Very quiet and effective.

    Any DVD/CD combo drive. Asus, LG, Samsung, Sony. I've used them all. They all get little usage and last a long time.

    Get a Seasonic Platinum 860W PSU so you're ready for any two-card GPU setup (even AMD).
  3. I forgot Ram Corsair vengeance pro 16gb 1866mhz
    And I'm looking at the Coolermaster storm stryker case

    For a system using a single GeForce GTX 770 graphics card a minimum of a 600 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 37 Amps or greater and that has at least one 6-pin and one 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

    For a system using two GeForce GTX 770 graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode a minimum of a 850 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 58 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin and two 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

    Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Sufficient Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most critical factor.

    Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) may require an additional increase to the maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock being attempted.
