thinkharris, this psu or the one you have listed will more than do the job.
I don't think you will ever use that much memory. 16gb should be plenty

I just made your Build.

Several suggestions that will save a bit of money plus increase performance.

1. Your Case is too expensive and does nothing for performance.

2. Use (2) 128GB SSDs in Raid 0 Array for increased performance instead of one large SSD.

3. The PSU is FINE if you don't want SLI or Crossfire in the future.
If you plan on running dual video cards in the future then suggest you go with 850-1000 Continuous Watt PSU.
I personally prefer Antec PSUs and Enclosures.

4. Use (2) HDDs of 2TB Capacity instead of 3TB Capacity to Ensure you will not have problems
with Two Tera-Byte Limit.

Everything else will make for a Great Build !!!! :) :)
