I have been extensively searching around for the last few weeks and this is what I have come up with so far. I was wondering if you guys have any recommendations or advice on my build since this is the first time I'll be building a desktop. Although my main use will be gaming, I will also be performing some heavy rendering tasks with this pc.

I will be gaming on a 1440p screen for beginners, but my plan is to acquire an extra GTX 1080 in the future so as to make the transition into 4k gaming. My main concerns are: 1) Will this PSU be enough for 1080 SLI in the future (i'll be overclocking the cpu as well). 2) Do you guys think this air cooler will be good for overclocking the i7? 3) I know little about air flow inside the case, so any suggestions of extra fans or fan setup would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
