Drop that PSU down from 1000w to about 650watts.. You are just wasting it for a single 980.

That looks like a very good selection of parts to me . You don't need a power supply that powerful and will lose efficiency in the PSU because you have so much headroom. Your system will pull just 300w at stock so something like a 750/850w model of any good PSU will be perfect for you.
