what u plan to use it for? if its just gaming... then 16gb ram is overkill, just get 2x4gb ram and 1333 or 1600 will be plenty. I dont think 1000 watts is needed.... at least 700, 750 will do and of course go with corsair, antec, seasonic or ocz. hope that helps

I plan to add another GPU in the future, and I will be doing some autocad for college and I also want to run a minecraft server thats why I choose 2x8g dimms for ram, and a big PSU.

You still don't need that much for SLI 670s. A good 750w Corsair HX or AX would be plenty.
