isn't that psu a bit overkill? i think you would only need a 750w. also a little more storage space on the ssd so you could put os and a couple games on it i suggest 120 gb. and finally you will only need 8 gb of ram if your not video editing.

The PSU is overkill, absolutely. But I'd rather spend an extra $80 dollars on a PSU you'll never need to upgrade, rather then later on spend another $180 on a PSU because you need to. Besides, I was advised when I was looking at getting dual 7970's on my bronze certified 850W was cutting it kind of close.

That motherboard is fantastic, well worth the investment. 8GB is enough RAM for now, you're right. But make sure you get 2x 4GB sticks and not 4 x 2GB sticks. Also write down the model number. That way in the future if you want to do video editing or if games get RAM crazy, you can just buy another 8GB kit.

If you are planning on doing triple Crossfire someday, you'll need that 1050W easy.

According an issue of Maximum PC I was just reading, their test system of dual 7970's drew a total of 815W, however that system did also feature a heavily overclocked i7 3960X. You do need at least an 900W PSU for tri crossfire as on a normal system with a 3570 overclocked, three 7970's drew about 825W and if you want to consider tri-crossfire, 1050W is a good number as it gives you some breathing room, and that Seasonic unit I picked out for you is one of the best around.

Also, if you on doing tri-crossfire, the sabertooth is the right board for the job as it has 3 PCI-E 3.0 slots and supports Triple Card Crossfire and Triple Card SLI, as well as supporting Quad GPU Crossfire (2 Dual GPU cards, like a Radeon HD 4870X2, 5970, 6990, and eventually 7990) and Quad GPU SLI (Also 2 Dual GPU Cards, like GTX 590 or 690)
