My System Specs

Best advice so far. Personally though, go 850w if you think you might go sli (for multi screen gaming, high res screen or 120hz monitor, surround 3d?)
Get as an ssd (within reason) as you can afford. 120gb min, 240 is ideal and if you have the funds and regularly pay lots of different games, have large apps that you want to be fast, go 512gb.

What case are you getting?
