The 550W SeaSonic G Series is a higher quality unit than the ST65F-G, it's modular, it has all the power this build will ever need, and it's only $99.99 from NCIX.ca:

With this PSU, you could overclock both your CPU and the GTX 770 and still have plenty of power left over. You could even upgrade to the GTX 780 and still have power left over.

I could even recommend the 450W SeaSonic G Series, but it's only $15 less. You could upgrade to the GTX 780 with it, but you wouldn't want to overclock it. You could still overclock the CPU though.

During the making of this post, I noticed that there's also the 460W SeaSonic Platinum Series Fanless for $129.99:

Now don't get me wrong: I'm not trying to recommend SeaSonic; it's just turning out that way because of the prices and also because of what NCIX has available. I tried looking at CanadaComputers, but a part of their site is down for maintenance. I also looked at Newegg, but NCIX.ca proved to be superior in terms of selection and prices.

So what kind of upgrades will you do? Will you overclock both the CPU and the video card, or just the CPU? If you overclock the video card, then will you also raise its voltage? (can you answer all of these questions in your next post?) I mean depending on what you want to do, you could probably get the 450W SeaSonic G Series for $84.99:

The reason I wanted the Silverstone was because it was 140mm and I can use the PP05 Short cable kit with it so I can watercool the cpu and gpu in the node 304.

or do you think I can get a MSI Gaming 770 (not lightning) and have watercooling with a 160mm modular unit and have it fit?
