hi this is the build i have come up with so far. My main concern is if i need a bigger psu for this system. I have a usb optical drive that i can install the os with and I have windows. I will buy a bigger hard drive when i run out of space.

that psu is enough. i personally would get a smaller sealed water cooler and save some money. the price also comes out to $1069.47 when i click it. the samsung 840 is sold out at $90 and i would rather have a non TLC ssd for the same price. i would also look at a non reference 670 but i didn't change it because that would be more money.
