So far this is my parts list... http://pcpartpicker.com/p/QL7Jqs (I'm leaving an aftermarket CPU cooler as a future upgrade unless anyone has some relatively inexpensive options).

My selected graphics card, the gtx 970 gigabyte g1, states that it needs both 8-pin and 6-pin connectors with a recommended power supply of 550 watts. I want to know if both of these two power supplies will work... Silverstone ST45SF-G or Silverstone SX600-G? I'm mostly concerned about the connectors and wattage needed. Although not as important, I would like to know their potential for overclocking (CPU and GPU) and upgrades (GPU) in the future.

that power supply is WAY overpriced here are 2 solid top quality psu's that will work fine for the system and are MUCH cheaper http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/compare/evga-power-supply-120g10750xr%2Cseasonic-power-supply-m12ii620bronze/

both will have the needed connectors and the ecga has enough to sli the 970 no problem.

But do those two PSUs include the necessary connectors for my graphics card?
