Hey guys, I have 1 build previous build under my belt as a helper mostly. I Have been doing a lot of research through the forums and picking up some good points a long the way. Given the parts list I have here, should I expect to run into any problems ?? any tips on a build like this. I already have the Cosmos 2, the rest of the parts are open to suggestion though I'd like to keep the aesthetic look of the VI Formula. I also know the PSU is way overkill, but thinking of future SLI possibilities and overall future proofing. I did run the PSU wattage software and it came back to just under 500 watts recommended, is there any downfall to having a much larger PSU ??? I thank you guys for your help in advance and for all the knowledge I have already learned on here.
