You don't really need the fan controller and if you're getting the 840 get the Pro version - it's much better than the standard.

If you don't buy the fan controller you can upgrade your video card to a 7950.

Otherwise everything else looks good.

It should be fine. That system will probably suck up 500 watts at the max. I'd get a 750 watts P.S.U just to be on the safe side though (If you can afford it though) if not just look for same price alternatives

The only reason i wanna go with the fan controller is because 3 of my 5 fans dont have multi-speeds incorporated with them and sound will be an issue at night when i mostly game as my girlfriend will be sleeping not to far from my desk also a 700watt psu is on the back burner i think ill go with the safe side thank ya
