The EVGA GQ 650 watt is not bad but its not all that great either
If you still have the option to return it you should as there are much better options out there

The Seasonic Foucs Plus Gold is a much better option and its fully modular

Sory to say but the one you have listed under your sig is even worse then the GQ

My retailer doesn't sell the seasonic focus but they do sell the Seasonic X-850 Fully Modular 80PLUS Gold 850W PSU (SS-850KM3 Active PFC F3)

What other options do they have?
The Seasonic X is not bad but its pretty old and there are better options from other brands such as Corsair, Bitfenix, XFX and EVGA

You can get a 650 watt EVGA SuperNova G2 for $145
http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=33_1238_443&item_id=092823

By the way the CPU cooler you picked in the OP is not a very good option and you are better off with good air cooler instead
Its going to be the same or better cooling its going to be cheaper its going to be more quiet and its going to be much more reliable and last a lot longer

http://www.overclock.net/t/1590547/why-you-should-probably-not-buy-a-clc-cooler

Any of these coolers is a good option

Do you have any AIO coolers that would be good because as much as i would like to get one of those air coolers they wont fot in the case
The cryorig r1 and h5 are to big for my case and i dont want the noctua because its probobly to big and it doesn't look good with its dark brown amd light brown colors

I've heard some pretty bad reports on this PSU. Along the lines of "the bare minimum a psu of this class could be"

If you dont like Noctua colors you can get chromax covers for them
http://noctua.at/en/products/product-line-chromax

If you dont want that there are coolers from Phanteks and Be Quiet
CLC coolers are rubbish and should be the last thing you look at

Alphacool, EK and Swiftech have some all in one liquid cooler kits which are much better then the closed kits you get from Antec, Cooler Master, Corsair, NZXT, Fractal Design and all the others

From what i know the GQ series below 850 watts is just a mediocre

So this is the final look of my pc
Forget about the monitors that are there
The PSU you picked is is not very good to say the least and is even worse then the first one you picked in some ways
http://www.overclock.net/t/1476935/why-you-should-not-buy-an-evga-supernova-nex650g-750g-aka-g1

There are options out there that are light years better then the old outdated FSP Aurum
The EVGA SuperNova G2/P2/T2 the Seasonic Foucs Plus Gold and Platinum the Seasonic Prime series and the Corsair RMx series all better then the old NEX aka G1 by far
