PSU is kinda expensive but it will last, and because you have the money to spend, it's better not to skimp on PSU

You may be just fine withouth overclocking, but i'll do build for that too.
This build has SSD which will load everything faster than HDD.
Actual price is lower, you have to minus HDD cost, because you already have one
