So, I'm about to build my first custom pc and think I could use a little help when it comes to cooling and wattage for power supply.

Here is my current build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3HTBO

Since I'm running to graphics cards (EVGA GTX 770) I assume my components and the whole thing would get pretty warm. So, what would be the best way to keep everything cooled when it comes to for example case fans? Any recommendations would be highly appreciated.

Also, do I need more or less wattage when it comes to my power supply? Would also be nice if yo had any other recommendations there if needed.

Thanks!

PSU is about the right size, but Gold doesn't make much of a difference. Get a good Bronze one; should be <$100.

Recommended: 1000W (all the ratings between 850W and 1000W are strange)

the i7 4770k has a max TDP of 84 Watts and the GTX 770 x 2 has a max TDP of 460 Watts. 554 Watts is 55.4% of 1000W Watts Quality PSU's maximum 'rated' capacity so there is a remaining headroom of 246 Watts (800 - 554).

The 800 figures comes from 80% of 1000W since the PSU should never be pushed past 80% at maximum load for long periods of time and/or past 60% at normal load for wear and tear as well as efficiency. However these measurements only apply if you are a getting a -Quality- power

Minimum: 850W
the i7 4770k has a max TDP of 84 Watts and the GTX 770 x 2 has a max TDP of 460 Watts. 554 Watts is 65% of 850W Watts Quality PSU's maximum 'rated' capacity so there is a remaining headroom of 126 Watts (680 - 554).

The 680 figures comes from 80% of 850W since the PSU should never be pushed past 80% at maximum load for long periods of time and/or past 60% at normal load for wear and tear as well as efficiency. However these measurements only apply if you are a getting a -Quality- power supply.
