Looks pretty good to me.

Be sure to also factor in the cost of windows if needed, but everything else seems fine. There shouldn't be any worries about clearance or bottlenecking. The only recommendation I have would be is replacing the fans of the cpu cooler (they're ugly/a bit louder) than I would like. Since you do have an open window case, maybe get matching fans?

Thank you for the feedback. I've already gotten windows so it's fine. Regarding the fans, that will be something I'll do later on. Do you recommend any?

I personally use Noctua NF-F12 fans (although ugly) but any static pressure fans would be the best choice. Although they will be louder than air flow ones, they're better for radiators and still work well for air flow.

If you want to go for cosmetics, the corsair SP120 series is my recommendation for excellent static pressure fans.

What about case fans? plus you don't need 750 watts really, unless you plan to SLI

Look at the EVGA G2 Supernova 650w PSU. Top quality. 10 year warranty. Cheaper
