Aside from the motherboard and ram, you seem good to go.

Motherboard is bare for the platform. Only 4 memory slots and quad channel capable, leaves much to be desired. I would recommend a motherboard with 8 memory slots and go with a quad channel kit.

Powersupply could be swapped for a more reputable Corsair/Seasonic/XFX.

The cooler master v series uses the Seasonic KM3 platform which is arguably the best platform. Same platform used in the "more reputable" brands. His psu choice is fine. Cheaper than other models using the KM3 platform.

Well that's good to hear. I stopped using CM a few years ago because they were complete **** lol.

Honestly who cares if it's only 4 slots. He still has two slots available to give him 32gb of ram which is beyond plenty. Dual chan vs quad chan doesn't exactly result in a huge performance difference either.

Wouldn't bother with the 780TIs. Fact is a refresh is right around the corner it makes more sense to wait if you're insistent on going with nvidia. Otherwise, I'd go for 290s or 290xs instead. You get 90-95% of the performance for 30% ish cheaper and more vram.

Either way with overclocking in mind you would probably want to consider bumping up to a 1000w psu.
