The best power supplies are reputed to be the ones from Corsair, Antec, Silverstone, PC Power & Cooling, & Cooler Master.

Yea.. anything Seasonic is good.. Just thought I'd offer some suggestions to give you the same performance at a lil less cost.. all the parts suggested and picked are quality. :)

I'd rather keep the products I had picked because once I obtain a degree from college and get a job I'll start building a serious pc with some of the core parts of this build.

How much are you paying for the Seasonic? they're usually more expensive than the Corsair AX750/850 which is the same seasonic platform inside and has full black cables which looks nicer imo

You already have a serious pc with these parts.. maybe a GPU and monitor bump but the rest should do you for 5 yrs without too much problems.

Exactly my point, that is why i don't want to change what i had picked. However, keep the suggestions going. I greatly appreciate them and i might change my mind if i see something i really like.

Edit:
-I've noticed that Newegg has LOTS of sales so i was wondering if they do that thing again where they put cheap 1000w PSU's should i purchase one?
-Their current sale has a 1000w CM PSU that has good reviews for the price of my 650w. Would a 1000w PSU slow down my system?

Won't slow it down, won't speed it up.. but CM are definitely not known for the quality of their PSU's..
The wattage of a PSU is how much output you get.. plain and simple... the CM can put out more power but the seasonic will put out "cleaner" (more stable) power.
1000 watt would do 3 680's with your current build.

If there are any xfx, Antec or Carsair ones on sale grab one cos they are(depending on the line) supplied by seasonic and tend to be cheaper and go on sale more than the Seasonic branded ones.

Alright Sounds great! Once i get the money I will notify you guys and show the current prices, I'll look out for a sale, and I'll look out for a gtx 660.

Edit:
I'm thinking about getting corsair low profile vengeance 16gb (4x4gb) ram.
I've chosen the corsair 850w blue PSU for now because its cheaper at my local store.

I have some final questions that I'd be so happy if anyone could answer them:

-Will the PSU be able to support the default fans of the HAF X plus an extra 200m red LED megaflow fan?
-Will the motherboard be able to support all these fans?
-Are all these items compatible? (I'm pretty sure they are)

Fans in the system:
- 1x1 x 140mm rear fan
- 1 x 200mm top fan
- 1 x 200mm top fan (cooler master megaflow red LED fan)
- 1 x 200mm side fan
- 1 x 120mm cpu fan (noctua nh-d14)
- 1 x 140mm cpu fan (noctua nh-d14)

Motherboard states the following:
1 x CPU Fan connector(s) (4 -pin)
1 x CPU OPT Fan connector(s) (4 -pin)
4 x Optional Fan connector(s) (4 -pin)
2 x Assistant Fan connector(s) (3 -pin)
1 x S/PDIF out header(s)
1 x 24-pin EATX Power connector(s)
1 x 8-pin ATX 12V Power connector(s)
1 x Front panel audio connector(s) (AAFP)
1 x System panel(s) (Q-Connector)
1 x MemOK! button(s)
1 x Clear CMOS jumper(s)

Current Power Supply Chosen:
Corsair HX850 850w Modular

Most of those fans will probably have a molex connector on them, if not get a cheap fan hub..

Thats an absolute f*** load of fans man... your not building a wind-tunnel :P

P.S I think the Corsair Blue isn't one of the Seasonic based units that everyone rants about.. Which will be why it's cheaper locally.. (needs verification)

Also, hope your price-matching to get the best from your money.
