+1 on the larger PSU. And the SSD can be upgraded if it's out of budget now. You are headed towards a fun and fantastic build. Take lots of pictures all during the build and when finished. Pay close attention to wire routing and keep things neat. Can't wait to see the 3.4 up and running, I have a 2.6 be and love it.

This could help with rethinking the PSU.
