Looks pretty good - unless you are going to SLI or Xfire you don't need a PSU that big.

Your build looks really good and you don't have to change anything. You could add a SSD if you had the extra money and that would make the performance of the Pc all that much better. It is just a thought in case you did have extra.

The good thing about building your own Pc is that you get to pick out the components that you want to put in and if you feel that you want a certian item then you should get it. Only you know what you are going to do with your computer and what plans you have , if you decide to add another video card then you will be glad that you have a bigger psu and untill then if you don't use the extra watts then you don't , it doesn't cost you anything.
