This isn't the finished rig as I will be getting sleething and possibly some different fans. Possibly some corsair pressure fans with the red ring to fit the red and black design.

If you find me any ways to save money, please do so! I appreciate all opinions. Still not to sure about the PSU.

If you check my website I linked at the beginning, you will see the different parts I have already acquired. It is all peripherals though so any real hardware inside the case is still changeable. 3 monitor setup at 1080p, or a 27" 1440p planned.

Drop the intel SSD and get an M500 or EVO 256GB for $140
PSU is more than enough for your needs.
Look into a mechanical keyboard.

Look into a mechanical keyboard.

The Intel SSD hasn't come out yet. It is the new 730 Series I plan on using. And there are SSD's with $0.50/Gb? o.o
Could I save on the PSU? Or should I keep it at this for future-proofing?
This is a mechanical keyboard. I have it right now haha.

I would get a 650w.
Also, the G710+ is mech, don't know why it doesn't have a plus on pcpartpicker

Which brand should I stick with? Corsair? I want it to be quiet, and a 80+ Gold. Not to mention Modular or Semi-Modular.

And the memory, it seems you're paying for the 8gb size, but speed would be better to maybe squeeze a few more fps out, something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226373. 2400 instead of 1600, 2x4gb and a few dollars less.

I would rather have the RAM be stylish. And I would Overclock it anyways. I plan on getting another stick of 8Gb later on, then 2 more even later for 32Gb. I will be using the rig for a lot of video editing in about a year when I get to high school video editing classes.
