Hi ! Im building my first gaming pc, I picked a full-size case because I want to have it for future upgrades. But watts confuse me, can someone confirm to me that what I picked was good? Also can I just build the pc with the parts listed or do i still need to go buy wires. Should I buy anymore fans for the case? Will I need more wires for that too? Idk really, just please give me all the advice you can:) Mainly going to be used for top gaming and possibly overclocking unless thats to much [PCPartPicker part list. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/FqGyyc

In that case, you can go with an i5 4690k, 8gb of ram and a higher wattage PSu like Tel suggested. You really don't an i7 and 16gb of ram for gaming.

You don't need thermal paste, the H100 comes with top quality TM already applied.

For memory you get a nice little boost to performance with 1866 CAS 9; http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-memory-cmy16gx3m2a1866c9r

The part that really stands out is the PSU - firstly, it is a budget model - secondly, it stops you getting a second 970 later - would suggest this top quality 750w, on a good offer currently too; http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20750xr

You shouldn't need any more wires or fans. Beyond that, hard too say, need to know what you are using it for.

Agree with Xalian about the I5 and 8GB RAM for gaming - the faster memory I suggested in an 8GB kit; https://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-memory-cmz8gx3m2a1600c9r
