Is 750w overkill for my build?

I'm waiting for the Rx 480 and I will be overclocking.

Better to have a quality stable power like you have with this psu, with overhead. Your pc will only utilize the amount it needs, also it's pretty cheap for a 750w and leaves room for upgrades to processors, stronger gpus, more memory, etc. :D Check out the reviews on the item, very good. The RX480 will probs only pull around 150 watts due to the new 14nm manufacturing process, so only slightly more than the gtx960.

You would be fine with 650w even 550w but like M7kr0 said it leaves you room to grow (SLI etc.) Since you already purchased I wouldn't worry about it.
