    I'd bump that PSU to 900W or even 950W. If you think that case will have enough room for the two cards then everything else looks good.

    You're welcome!

    You'll be fine. Keep yourself grounded to the case metal when you build it.

    When you build, do it in this order:

    CPU into Motherboard (Whatever you do, DO NOT touch the top of the CPU!)
    Fan onto CPU
    Motherboard into Case
    PSU
    Memory
    SDD
    HDD
    Other
    GPU

    This should make it nice and painless.

    Hey man, just saw your notifications. Yeah everything looks good. No you do not need extra wires or paste, everything comes with the components that you are getting. The old HDD stuff is fine, you can pull all the wires from the old stations. I would not cut on cost in any of those components as they will provide plenty performance and will pay for themselves pretty fast.
