Regarding your memory choice, why are you choosing 3 dimms? They'll end up running in single channel mode. Get a kit of 4 dimms so they can run in dual channel mode.

Regarding the power supply, I would go with a better brand. Kingwin is not known for quality power supplies. Go for a corsair 850 w.
