All good choices, though the power supply is a bit much. Go for the Corsair 650TX if you plan on adding another GPU in future, Corsair 550VX if you don't. Just saves you a bit of money is all

And personally I'd go for at least a 750GB hard drive, but that's personal preference really.

Desktop i5-4440 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - EVGA GTX970 - 4x4GB 1600MHz - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - Be Silent Base 800 - 3TB+1TB+640GB
Laptop i7-3740QM @ 2.7GHz, 2x4GB 1600Mhz, GT640M, OCZ Agility 3 120GB
Smartphone HTC One M8 - Sense 7 - 6.0

agreed. I'd go for the 650TX even if you're not planning to and another GPU right now anyway, always nice to keep your options open.
