I know theres an estimate, but thats not 100% correct. I need a closer answer, or can my current psu on the list handle it? http://pcpartpicker.com/list/mJmC6X

This setup will hardly take 200W, so a good 350W unit would be fine - but the interesting units start from 450W, such as Corsair CX450M.

The next good unit is XFX TS Gold 550W (not modular), or FSP Hydro X 450 (better than the XFX, still not modular) or EVGA G2 550 (the best, fully modular 7 year warranty)

aside from that this build is pretty poorly arranged. that motherboard choice combined with that cpu and cooler is laughable. the psu isn't great and it's over 3x the amount this build will pull under load. a GTX 1060 with a better cooler would be preferable too.

Just a question: if you're not interested in modularity, what would be the better unit: the FSP Hydro X 450 or the SeaSonic M12II 520?

FSP Hydro X is way... WAY above the M12II 520.

I made an overall better list. You can't overclock with an H110M anyways, and a Z170 board with a 6600K is out of your price range. You could change the case if you wanted it for the looks (although the Fractal Design Define S is a more solid and feature packed case).

Absolutely no CPU cooler is needed for if you're not overclocking, and the cooling on this card is overall better (but, if you really prefer it get the Turbo but it will be louder).

The case fan is also absolutely not needed but if you wanted to be sure then it's okay. The SickeFlows are just cheapo cheapo fans (read as: decorations with leds).

And the SSD will result in much faster loading speeds for Windows and games, the 1 TB HDD is optional.

Thanks so much man, i'm thinking about changing it. Although the GPU I choose the ASUS one becasue I prefer blower style

No problem, and if blower style is your thing; go for it.
