PSU Wattage for My New Build?

So I've been thinking and planning out my first build. My build is gonna be very high-end so it's probably gonna be futureproof for at least 3.5 years. This build Is gonna cost about like $3,000. Please don't reply with that "Oh this build is too overkill and expensive, let me give you a good build for cheap! Specs: blah, blah, blah..." Like I said, this build is gonna be futureproof. Also, I will be playing games like Metro 2033 or Battlefield 3 on the highest possible settings with all the Antistropic Filtering and Anti-Aliasing maxed out for at least 65 fps @1920x1080

  1. Yes, Seasonic is a good brand and 1000 watts will work perfectly (with room for future upgrades).
