If you plan on overclocking your CPU to some high levels and or overclock the graphics card, you'll need a PSU with higher wattage like 1000W - EVGA SuperNOVA G2 1000W.

Other than that, everything looks good.

I agree, you shouldn't have skimped on the psu. Especially with those power hungry 290x cards..... get a 1000w

ah crap…. - good to know everything else is alright..
but in regards to the power supply;
will i run into any problems provided i don't over clock?

I'll wait until i know how to over clock and then think about upgrading it a bit later.
