I'd get something like this for the PSU.

 

 

 

Also the case you chose seems a tad cheap. My recommendation One of the best cases I've ever worked with.

Seasonic is recognized as one of the Very best PSU makers. Raidmax is not. Good luck with the first build, It's a fun thing.

Thank you for all your help. One more quick question is the 200w power drop going to effect stuff like the gpu and future oc?
(The gpu requires 500w min power supply)
