Was just making sure that everything would work well with eachother and that nothing would overheat or anything like that. My build is right here: http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx...

Wasn't sure if I should put this in this section or not, but if anything is messed up or if everything looks alright, say something. Thanks!

It is all compatible, however the PSU is overkill (1050 Watts can power 3 Graphics cards)
Also, if you plan to overclock you need the i7 4770k not 4770.
For a speed boost get an SSD, you can use the money saved my getting a diffrent PSU.

I am not going to be overclocking, but how many watts do you think would be good? I dont want to turtle neck and have just enough for the graphics cards, I want a little extra just in case. I would want to stick to corsair as they are a good brand, but any other suggestions would be good.

Corsair RM PSUs are tempremental, they switch off randomly and short a lot.
I would recommed the ax 750i/ 860i.

The thermal issues was with the RM 750 and 850 but has been solved. My RM 650 has no issues yet although I would have picked up a XFX XTR 650 if they actually sent reviews out earlier.

What about SEASONIC? I heard that is a good brand too.


XFX uses seasonic platforms and improves slightly on it. Either brand is fine.
The Corsair AX series is made by Seasonic. The AXi series is made by Flextronics. However, 760W is overkill for your system.
