Gaming/Virtualisation Build

I plan to SLI and probably OC in future. My uncle is visiting in February from the U.S. and I'm going to ask him to buy the parts over in America and bring them here on his flight (but not the case). His wife and child adds extra space again to ship more stuff too :) i7 and 16GB of RAM because of virtualisation. Thanks for the input!

Looks great. Wouldn't change a thing. Maybe a bigger PSU? MAYBE?

Thanks but I'm just a kid and I don't want to send the parents broke with a massive power bill xD (But I'll only be using this on weekends so idk)

Well, a larger PSU isn't going to draw that much unless your system needs to draw that much

It just has the capacity to do so when needed

like this PSU with 750W, just as much, fully modular

Ah ok, thanks for clarification. I wasn't sure (neither was my parents) when I announced I wanted a 750w PSU :P I'll look into some good options.

Yeah, I thought instantly of the EVGAs. Reviews looks good for it too. Edited part list. Thanks for the help!
