Since you're not playing fps games a 770 gtx would still be really good and better value for money than the 780 gtx, but in the end it's up to you, both should last you for a bit.
Also if you don't see a benefit of upgrading from a 1TB HDD to 2TB perhaps check out 240/250GB SSDs instead, I went with a bigger one myself and never regretted it

Otherwise looks good!

From the reviews i have seen a 290 performs better more than not when compared to a 780 at 1440p and up. The Sapphire Tri-X 290 is the best on the market.

Don't listen to others to downgrade your gpu.. More power is always better and will help you in the future. If you play some heavy RTS games then you need the grunt at that res too.

I haven't been able to find any reviews of the CM V650S just yet. Have you perhaps found any?
Well hopefully you do a build log

Regarding the V650S, I was looking for a hybrid modular or fully modular 80+ gold+ PSU to replace my GS700 and I came across recommendations for it on a few forums and on YouTube, I now have one in my main computer and I put one in a computer that I built for my brother (both systems running Crossfire 270X), it's really quiet too when you're not stressing it. I was also looking at the EVGA 650G which comes with a 10 year warranty, and the Corsair RM650, but the V650S supposedly blows them away.

According to this review (German), it maintains over 90% efficiency at any load - http://www.gamezoom.net/artikel/Cool...Review-29392-0

EDIT: There's also the SeaSonic G650. Being SeaSonic, I won't even need to talk about the quality of that lol.
