Power supply for build?!

I'm building this rig very soon and after weeks of just looking changing parts I'm still indecisive to what power supply, I plan to overclock ( hence the CPU liquid cooler) but would like a good quality psu which will be suitable for the future also.

Any edits/ recommendations to the rig would also be greatly appreciated,

Thanks.

This PSU. Its top rated. I own it. Its quiet. Has a 10 year warranty. Plenty of sleeved cables. Just all around good.

Thanks I'll have a look is the fully modular design extra beneficial when managing cables over a semi modular supply and would a 750 w be able to cope with an overclocked 4690k with 2x gtx 970's in sli ?

Semi modular, usually just have the mobo and CPU cable attached. The rest are removable. So no real difference in cable management. Yes the 750 I suggested would handle that.

If you want to do 2 970s, then you may want a little more powerful unit.

He can't sli with that mobo. He'd have to change that as well.

The build looks great. The PSU will only add to it. Get this ssd instead. Its better. http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/samsung-internal-hard-drive-mz75e120bam

Thanks for the link, if it's only £22 more then why not double the capacity, at least I can store more games as well as the os. +1

Haha, that's fine tbh I'll rather have a higher capacity ssd which is moderately fast than a smaller faster ssd at the moment. however I could probably just add a 840 evo if I wanted to down the line anyways.
