In that case your GPU is overkill as well. You don't need a 750W PSU, a 550W will work just fine. You don't need a $200+ motherboard, there are many in the $150 range that will do nearly everything the same what you picked out. And a 1080ti for a 1080 60Hz monitor? The build isn't bad, but it's overkill in different ways.

So i will be choosing a CM 650W for being futureproof and what motherboard should i pick can you please suggest and the reason for going for 1080ti is that i will be doing little animation stuff too like working in autodesk maya so rendering and 3d stuff may make use of it in future.

"Futureproof" for PSUs doesn't work. 100W more or less doesn't help much either. You honestly might as well keep the too large 750W PSU, or drop to a 550W like I suggested.

Here is an awesome Seasonic 550W PSU for $68 out the door, $58 after rebate. Will have no problems powering your rig. Though it's nearly half the price of the unit you were looking at.

Here is a much cheaper board, though I'm in a hurry and not sure what it's missing.

Edit: While that board is a good one, I noticed it doesn't support SLI. If that matters to you try this one.

This one is even $120 after rebate. I'm running an older UD4 board which they don't seem to have as an option though this looks to be very similar.
