Swapped to a dual channel ram kit, cheaper and offers better performance opposed to single channel. Swapped to a cheaper psu. Why the 750watt if you don't mind me asking?

As far as the PSU,I was not sure how big to go. I will be adding more hard drives later and the case I have, has 3 fans.

750 is a sweet spot for expansion, say you decide to get a more powerful gpu next year or something, like the R9 280X or gtx 770 and up. 750 will still be plenty to handle the higher power draws. But if you don't plan on upgrading it, and aren't going to be overclocking your gpu I would go with a solid 500-600watt unit. Corsair CX600 is $35 right now with a MIR.
