So I haven't built a PC in years and I've recently been asked to build one for some serious numerical simulations. I just want to double check if everything I've selected will work nicely together. My biggest worry is the power supply (i.e. is it big enough?, enough outputs?, etc). Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks guys!

It is a decent. Build. The power supply is adequate. Your minimum would be 381 Watts.

Don't change anything though, like hard drives, you don't get 100% of what is written on the box.
