As others have said, the PSU is a bit overkill. Bump down to a 600 to 650 watt PSU.

PSU overkill you could go 600w maybe even 550w. If you are going to do serious 3d modeling and editing go with more RAM and a socket 2011 chip and keep the PSU with this config.

What is the speed of the RAM? It could be a little overkill, but with looking at the components, it definitely seems like you don't have a restricting budget. Otherwise, it looks great and my comment would be, are you sponsored by Corsair or something?

LOL..

they do tend to have some co-ordination in parts, don't they.. it's a conspiracy!

Here is a 650W PSU with the same beatiful looks as the AX series. A|lso I would change the SSD to something moe reliable, like the Samsung 840 250GB.

Hope it helped!

Ive done some work for both Asus and Corsair so i get 50% off most products for corsair and lifetime warranties for any asus products, therefore i will be keeping the same PSU, cant hurt plus i may get a second GPU later. after looking at the samsung 840 i may switch to it, Ram is 1866Mhz, Basic adobe stuff and 3dvia and art of illusion, and my old machine had an i3 3220 on a Gigabyte ga-b75m with a 500gb hdd
