You could lower that PSU down to 750w or 650w if you want to lower the price a bit more...

I agree, you don't need that much power. The mobo isn't a SLI mobo, the 2nd slot is just a 4X PhysX slot. Even if you maxed out your overclock I doubt if you would need 600W.

It looks like a good little computer to me.

I have a blu-ray drive in both of my PC's and I never use them for blu-ray's.
