Given the expense of that build I would change the PSU to a 80%+ Gold one. What video card are are you planning on getting? What about an SSD? It would be almost senseless not to put one (or two) in something that high end.

Honestly I don’t know. Do u have any recommendations?
SeaSonic is one of the best brands of PSUs. A couple of brands such as Crucial and Samsung make decent SSDs. I two Crucial M500 SSDs from 2013 that I haven't had any issues with at all. The MX500 is current Crucial model.

Seconded. I've got a friend that I hooked up with a Crucial M500 quite a few years ago. It's only a 120GB, but he hasn't really out-grown it, and it has proven to be very reliable.

More recently, I've purchased a few MX500 SSDs, but haven't deployed them. I've also purchased quite a few BX500 SSDs, and I have used those. They perform amazing well, for a budget SATA SSD. Will be purchasing more.
