if any one thing had to be changed, i think you can tune the psu down a bit for heat deterioration quality. you can use a 750w Antec HCG, Rosewill Capstone 750w, The COrsasir TX 750w, PCP&C Silencer MKII 750w, Corsair TX 750w modular, and XFX Core 750w by the time you reach the 800w gamer series psu.

ivy bridge cpus and modern gpus have low power consumption, an 800w psu is overkill

Plus the Gamer Series from Corsair isn't the best. Maybe I just got unlucky but I had one go bad in less than month. Corsair makes good PSU's the GS series are not my favorite though. Do you need to SLi? There's a great 620w Seasonic on newegg right now.

It's $30 cheaper too @ $90

Here's a quality Antec 750w that was mentioned above:

$95 and would allow you to SLi in the future no problem.
