Sorry for the noob question, and I know I'm overthinking it. Just wanna make sure. Also plan on adding some case fans, kb + m of course, possibly another led strip later on...my psu should be fine right? I just see alot of builds with similar parts but with 650w + psu's.

Thanks for your help. This site is awesome. Love everyone's builds which has got me pumped about my own.

550w is fine with that build

550W is fine. But I'd personally look at it like this: look at both of the power supplies, if they are exactly the same but different wattage, you wanna calculate the amount of watts you get per dollar you pay :)

550 watts is more than enough. That build will only draw 175-200 watts. And the G3 SuperNOVA is one of the best PSUs out there, so you're fine in that regard.
