You don't need 16GB of RAM for a gaming computer, and unless you plan on SLI, 550-650 watts is plenty. Other than that it should be a great gaming computer.

Only thing I would change is the power supply, the EVGA supernova is not great quality. It is an ok power supply but for an awesome build like yours, you should get a better one. Seasonic, XFX, Corsair AX/HX are the ones to look at:

Also, any reason in particular you want 750w? Do you plan to SLI another GTX 780 in the future?

Actually the new EVGA Supernova G2 got a 9.9/10 from Johnny Guru, it is very very good (but you are right that the version he picked is not so great).

Get 8gb of ram to save money and get cheaper case fans. Also get a different ssd model (even kingston hyper x is fine). The ssd v300 uses low quality flash.

Looks good to me. I would take these other guys suggestions though.

One thing I would do it change the motherboard the the ASUS Maximus VI HERO

750w for SLI will be just right. The Gold ratings have only a little to do with the quality of the components in the power supply. The gold rating just refers to it's efficiency from the plug to the PC (not from the stated wattage). This means that with a gold rated psu (90% efficiency) if your pc is drawing 400w of power, you would draw 444w from the wall but with bronze rated PSU (80% efficiency) you would draw 500w from the wall. Basically rating =/= quality but a better rating means a smaller power bill.

Also, you can take a look at this list, which is a quick guide to buying a PSU and pick up one of the tier 1, 2A or 2B power supplies: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-su...
