Default First PC Build

Hi everyone, I don't really know how I'm supposed to introduce myself in a thread like this so I'll cut straight to the chase. I found myself a job and now i'll be saving up money for a new gaming pc. The budget for the parts will lie around 700 euro's ($896,91). My build is based of a best buy guide with 2 minor changes in it. (link to the guide: http://tweakers.net/reviews/3116/3/d...mesysteem.html) it's in Dutch so I think that might be a problem for some of you guys. But here is my altered build.

Case: Corsair Carbide Series 200R 52.90 euro ($67,78)
Link: http://azerty.nl/0-1044-563039/corsa...ies-200r-.html

Motherboard: MSI Z77A-G45 103.90 euro ($133,13)
Link: http://azerty.nl/0-4924-491249/msi-z77a-g45.html

Processor: Intel core I5 3350p 154.90 ($198,47)
Link: http://azerty.nl/0-2532-552887/intel...p-3-1-ghz.html

Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 2x4GB 73.41 ($94,06)
Link: http://azerty.nl/0-750-568279/crucia...rt-vlp-ge.html

Video Card: Palit Geforce GTX 760 JetStream 234.90 ($300,98)
Link: http://azerty.nl/0-5644-630313/palit...-dvi-hdmi.html

Now since I want to make my pc SLI ready for in the future I picked a motherboard who supports SLI (seems logical) but I don't know a lot about power supplies. Also you may have noticed that I haven't put in the mouse or monitor e.g. these I will sort out later. Any tips or recommendations for this build will be greatly appreciated thank you in advanced and excuse my English

The Seasonic S12II would be a good option (http://azerty.nl/8-1073-280735/sea-s...bronze-vo.html)

There is also a modular version of it, the M12II (http://azerty.nl/8-1073-275750/sea-s...bronze-vo.html)

If you want a somewhat quieter and more efficient power supply (80plus gold vs Bronze), you could go with a G-550 (http://azerty.nl/8-1073-550165/seaso...0-voeding.html)

Thank you for your reply! I still got a question however. Do you think 520 or 550w is enough for sli? Since I probably want to put another gtx 760 in there in the future.

You could go with an extra 100W or so for two of those 760s. All of the power supplies I mentioned have 620 and 650W versions of them

I probably should add, you might get away with 500W, but the extra headroom won't hurt

Thanks for your input . Now i think this is all compatible with eachother, I'd love if someone could confirm this for me. Now the only thing left is picking out the monitor and such.
