I say you will be extremely happy with that list. Looks like all really good parts for me. I researched the (*^% out of what I picked for my build trying to find best bang for the $$, best overclocking compatibility, longest life spans, blah blah and got what I got. You got some good 2nd choices and tied choices in that list. I went with the corsair hx750, though but the seasonics are really good as well.. More just preference as to what ya get with those =] I was gonna say get modular but then realized that IS modular PSU.. You should get lots of use out of that build and have PLENTY of headroom to safely overclock it later on if you so choose.
Side note, I only went with the 7950 over the (then) matched 660ti PE for that extra RAM, and better overclocking ability. though i could of waited and gone for a 760 or something and probably be slightly ahead

My thoughts exactly. 4.4ghz stable, super temps, low power draw, happy as can be with it. If I had waited to buy my build, I would of gone for Haswell though(wasnt released yet =P)

I don't need a monitor or Peripherals. my complete build list is here:

Don't laugh if you see mistakes. This is my first build, and i could use some help. Any suggestions?
Gotta put my 2 cents in for the overclocking killing cpu life.
Yes if you overclock heavily, you will kill the processor faster, but the way I see it is, you will be replacing that CPU in about 3-4 years time anyways (for me that is shortened to about 2 wink.gif ) so that makes the fact that its life is shortened a nill fact. Also as long as you aren't giving it too much voltage, you can overclock as high as is stable. I only increased the voltage by something small like 0.05 and achieved my 4.5GHz overclock on that same processor. As long as its cooled properly, you will not shorten the CPU life by anything you will actually notice.

As it pertains to your actual build, not sure how you got such a high total for that.

I do worry about the OVerclocking. I can't afford a new CPU if it gives out lol. on a side note: Can this build support windows 8? Also if i had some LED fans and some alchemy strips is that 550 enough watts to support it?

If you are that worried then toward the end of the lifespan of the comp OC the CPU to prolong the life a bit more. Windows 8 Yes. Fans and LED Yes.
