Stop complaining about PSU's being overkill, sometimes they come in at a good price point, on more than one occasion i have seen the AX850 on sale for the same price as the 750, and there is nothing wrong with tons of overkill, 750/850 may be overkill for a quadcore/670, but it's not overkill for a quadcore/sli, there is nothing more upsetting than to get a new GPU or second GPU only to find out after it arrives that you are a few amps short on your PSU
nor can you point to efficiency loss, if you really care about those 50 or so watts you are wasting by not being in the optimal power range, shut off a light somewhere

Like, if you buy a larger PSU won't that just cover you pretty much forever no matter how power hungry a system you make in the future? Seems like it would be economical. Or does it cost significantly more on your electricity bill to run a larger PSU?
I could understand suggesting that a 10,000TB hard drive might be overkill, but it seems like the go-to critique is suggesting a 650 watt PSU instead of a 700 watt PSU.
Alright, so following up from previously, the Corsair C70 really does shine and look so much better with an 'actual' side window, imo It looks even nicer now.

Just got my case today and just got it almost finished. Just need to tie down the cables in the back and make sure there's no way I can hide the other cables or just sleeve them all white, I haven't decided yet.
Next upgrade on my list is to upgrade these two crappy ass 22" monitors to 24" or bigger and to replace all the fans with white led fans just need to wait for my paycheck to buy those next week. Other than that I think it's fine. Once I'm completely finished, cables will be tied off in the back and it'll move to the desk on the left. And this case is so damn heavy, I pulled a muscle in my shoulder lifting it. I know, I know, I need to exercise more
Oh and, I WANT A GTX670 IN SLIT NAO!

Not how we usually post images, but that's fine. Anyway, your build looks fine!
