I've been looking to build a new PC with this hardware. Before I buy, I'd like some opinions on the parts I plan on buying.

I do have a question, though. I'm not sure if I need this big of a PSU. I used the Antec PSU Calculator, it came to around 770 Watts. I'm really doubting that with the SLI 570's. Can anyone give me a good, solid answer for how big I need my PSU to be? Many thanks!

You have a lot of components listed. You may want to revise it so that it is more clear of what you're actually considering. The one thing that I notice on your list is those WD blues. I wouldn't get those.

the blues are good for storage. you already have a ssd.... one of the best ones, so you're set for OS + some programs.
