Thank for all your support

You dont need a gaming graphics card for a graphics computer, so you can save a bunch by downgrading that a bit.

Also get a 920, the 950 is not worth the price premium especially if you OC the 920. You also need triple channel ram for an i7 not dual channel and for your uses im going to suggest 12GB. Get 2 kits of this ram.

You also dont need nearly that much power, get an Antec EA650 it will be more than enough to power any single card solution and is better quality than the thermaltake PSU.
