Single Status Update
Finally got my new PC up and running. Here are the specs:
CPU: Intel Core i7 6700k, 4.0 GHz, GPU: MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G, Memory: 16 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4, Mobo: ASUS Z170-A, PSU: EVGA 850W 80+ Platinum (fully modular), Cooling: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, Storage: Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB SSD (adding in a 2 TB HDD soon).
Let me know what you think! I was able to get 120 fps at maxed out setting across the board. (I know, not too impressive for WoT, but better than the 40 I was getting before!)

@TheMarine0341 I don't think so. If you look CPU and GPUs they tend to lower consumption. Only if he wants some crazy SLI setup or something....
It may be overkill for a single 980ti + 6700k, but it won't draw more power than a 550w or a 650w would, so no loss there. Only the higher purchasing price. And if he wants to sli the 980ti, 850w gets dangerously close if he overclocks aswell.
Yes he could have spent less and bought a 650w for example, but a good 850w does not cost that much more than a good 650w does. And with the 850w he can put every cpu + single gpu combination in there he desires, even monsters like a R9-295x2 or the new Fury x2 without having to worry. Maybe even SLI / Crossfire, depending on the card.
