I'm confused why you got 2 different sets of RAM. You would probably be limited to 1600 CAS 10 if you get both of them if they worked together at all. Just get one or the other. And 8GB is plenty for a budget build.

http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm <-- Recommends a 500W PSU for a GTX 760 build, especially considering the Corsair CX line is a tier 3 PSU.
