Might as well throw the extra $50 or so at the CPU and get an i5-6600k, slightly faster at stock, and much better for overclocking when the system starts ageing a bit.

Beyond that,I think it looks fine really

Cool, thanks for the suggestion :)

Oh also I currently have a Corsair HX-650 Power Supply, will that be enough?

Yeah should be fine. I can't remember what the warranty is on them, but 4 years is relatively new.
You can always plug in all your info into this calculator. I did it roughly and it came out at just over 500W so should be fine. (I didn't know if you had extra fans, cooling, dvd drives, hdd's besides the 4GB etc though) It'll give you a rough idea on how much you'll need.

Cheers Disruptor4 I'll give it a look. I have way too many hard drives, one reason for buying the 4Tb to try and consolidate a little :)
