First PC build - last minute changes?

Budget (including currency): $1150

Country: United States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Medium Gaming, some light video editing/audio editing, lots of programming (android studio, VS code, etc), will also be dual booting with a linux distro (probably ubuntu), virtualization (virtualbox or vmware)

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc):

Just spent a little bit more and got a 600W version of the same PSU. Still EVGA BR but extra wattage allows for upgrade ability.

It's not wattage that's so much a concern as the quality. The forum's tier list explains it better than I would be able to:

No, you made the wrong decision. You should habe gotten a better quality PSU rather than a higher wattage one.

your build would be fine even with a 450W psu, it's the quality that matters and the evga br is not good quality.
