That PSU is way over the top, unless you plan on getting another 295; something like a Corsair 750-TX would be do that build easily.

RAM is way overpriced, you can find a faster set for $75 cheaper.

you can get a really nice I7 build for $1500..so you're build is over priced by like $300-500 :|

Oh yeah I plan on adding another 295 later and also another 6GB of RAM. Maybe a sound card but I mainly use headphones because I have a family and I know they don't want to hear me shooting up the town, LOL.

As I have posted in other topics, this build is 1500$, and includes the GTX295, and if your budget is a bit higher, you can throw a water cooling kit in there for your GPU and CPU.
But thats up to aspire, I know nothing about water cooling.

Good luck.
