Im going to be building my first PC soon. This is the build that i came up with http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zHu4

Im going to over clock both Gpus and the cpu. Im also going to have around 4 fans and a lot of UV lights. Is the Psu that i choose good enough.

Also im not buying these parts right away it going to be over time.

Topower is not a tier one brand; don't go by the wattage alone. Here's two better brands: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (no power cord included). I highly recommend you buy everything at once so you can test them all together, since most items have a 30 day return policy. Save your money and be patient. It will pay off in the long run.

First of all Don't get the 965, it will bottlneck your GPUs big time. FX 8350 or I5-3570k would be your best choice.
Get a bigger harddrive, that is suicide, building a great gaming rig with no space for all the games? Just no.

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p11050bef... This PSU should do fine for your needs.

If I were to give you any advice then I would cut one of the GPUs and have more money for better harddrive, CPU, case, MOBO and RAM. That gaming rig is way too unbalanced. By doing that you would also save some money on the PSU.
