it needs a 500 watt psu , not 750 watt

Surprisingly low price for what you are getting.

Ditto on the PSU, you don't need one that size, but don't cut it down to a junk PSU.
Here's a list of good/bad models for PSU: http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx

500W is probably fine, if it's coming OC'd, it maybe a good idea to get a 600W though. (not sure how the water cooling stuff is powered, or how much it needs, that may add some stress)

If you plan to SLI, keep it.

I plan on SLI'ing it in the future, so idk if the 750w was enough, but yeah haha, that cyberpower build surprised me too, it's so cheap because i chose the lowest costing custom build and changed it to that lol, there's like a 200-300$ difference between that and newegg, so i'm thinking, why not?

change the liquid cooling to push pull.

get rid of the 12 in 1 reader. its crap.

add max case fans +9.
