Could someone please give me advice on what i could do to even out this build? This is my first build so an extra set of eyes would be great. and if possible input on what Display and Keyboard would be the best for my build.

The title of this post reminds me of this book lol. Excellent part choices, especially the case. I got that one for Christmas and I can't wait to build in it. What is your budget for a monitor and the keyboard, and also what is the purpose of this build? If gaming you can save some money and get 8GB of RAM and a 4690K CPU.

I plan on using it for gaming and graphic animation and design next year in college. (The price in the build is $600 too high the actual price is more of $1700ish i removed a graphics card and it didn't transfer that decision to the total price). Does the case seem like pretty good quality?

It appears to be an amazing case and I haven't even built in it. Lots of reviewers like it too.

Just one thing that catches my eye. While running SLI(I know you currently do not plan to, but I take it you will want to, when you get the money for the second 980/a game comes out that is worth it) on the 650W might not be impossible, I'd say for ocing a 4790k with a two way gtx 980 sli, you'd want to have a beefier PSU. Just my guess. Again the 650W will do. Would only consider changing it if you SLI. Awesome build though.

How about the EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 750W 80+ Gold?

How much would you recommend upgrading it? I plan to add another 980 relatively soon so that I have he option to SLI.
