Welcome to the Forum.

 

If you're going for SLI down the road, this looks pretty good. Maybe go for a different SSD but it's your choice.

If you're not going for SLI down the road, then you can drop down to a 500w PSU easily.

Sig under construction.

I might actually be looking to utilize two GPUs down the line. Why is this SSD a bad choice for that? Thanks m8

@coolyr build is good you could save a tiny bit by going with the 650W GS Supernova Gold Cert. - fully modular. 

Good suggestion, can I ask why I don't need the extra wattage? If I overclock and maybe utilize a second GPU in the future, wouldn't the extra 100W be worth it?

 

Again, just asking because I'm curious, I am not an expert. Also, that guy is a moron.  :D

Sure.  The GTX 970 SLI setup won't use more than 350W.  A good 650W PSU, (EVGA GS Supernova as an example), is way more than enough for two cards.

You could take the money saved and put it elsewhere, for example:  http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f317000cl11d8gbxl

 

RAM won't net you much more than 1-2 FPS in 99% of games, but if you ever decide to render/edit/run simulations, etc... it might be nice to have the extra speed.
