With the trend that graphics card are going with especially with Pascal I think you can save a bit and go with the less powerful power supply you might even consider an sfx one since you are going with M build.

Looks great, I have that case and it's a pleasure to work with. The only thing I'd suggest is getting a smaller power supply and something more recent. If you plan on going single card, a high quality 550W unit is all you need. Something like an EVGA Supernova G2 550 or P2 if you want to stretch your budget for it.

Thanks for the suggestions. I already have the PSU and got it for $80 on Ebay. I havent tried it yet but it looks and smells like new so it had little use. I really wanted to go with a smaller psu but i felt like $80 was a great deal for such a strong psu.
