My System Specs


2 suggestions:

That PSU is overkill, and I'm not familiar with that brand. An 850w should run that system at load, a 1000w would for sure. And that case is totally enclosed (no window) you could save some cash by not going modular. Look at these:
Corsair TX850W 850W CMPSU-850TX 12V 70A 24PIN AT Power Supply Active PFC 140M Fan Powersupply - DirectCanada
Corsair HX1000W CMPSU-1000HX 1000W ATX 20/24PIN ATX 80A 12V Afc Modular Power Supply W/ 140MM Fan - DirectCanada

And I'm not a fan of Coolermaster fans. Pick up some Yate Loons, they're a lot quieter than the CM's (I have both).
Yate Loon D12SL-12 120MM RED/BLACK Fan 1350RPM 47CFM 28DB 3/4PIN Sleeve Bearing OEM Sleeved Retail - DirectCanada

Awesome build, you'll have lots of fun when it's done.
