While the SSD won't affect gaming performance at all, it will definitely make overall system usage way faster (faster boot times, application launches, ect), and will make everything feel more fast. While having an SSD isn't necessary, it is strongly recommended. Most SSD's aren't very expensive. Just get a cheap 100-256 GB SSD ($50-80), and put the OS and all of your commonly used programs (web browser, ect) on there, and then place all of your large programs and files (games, ect) on a 2nd mass storage drive.

You definitely want an SSD, it will make overall system usage much snappier. You could get an M.2 drive.

That's pretty much what I said. By "them" I meant customer reviews. I never said that customer reviews can be used 100% of the time, only that they aren't completely useless.

They can help to filter out the utter crap. The PCPP reviews aren't too reliable, simply because there aren't enough of them. If it's better than 4 stars on 10 or more reviews, look at a professional review site.

EDIT: Added more SSD's.

Note 1: For a 4th Titan, you will have to sacrifice 512GB RAM, and go with the Asus Z10PE-D8 WS instead.

Note 2: Windows has a max limit of 512GB of RAM

Note 3: You will need two PSU's.

Note 4: This is the ultimate editing PC. This will not perform well in games at all.

On the other hand, the 430W has a 4.6 across 60 reviews. Review site Johnyguru gave the 400W a 5.5/10, vs 8.5/10 for the 430W.

The reliability of a PSU can still be in question, regardless of the load on the unit. While that unit probably won't burst into flames, an investment in a better PSU would be a good choice.

PSU: Better quality unit.

Motherboard: Went with this one from MSI because of USB Type-C/3.1 support. It also looks nicer(in my opinion).

GPU: That 1060 was a bit pricey, went with this one instead.

I resembled the build to match with the new GPU, changed RAM as a part of that. Unfortunately no longer matches with peripherals.

That PSU is a bit.... sketch. I suggest either this 430W 80+ from EVGA, or the 450B (also EVGA).

The probability of your entire house burning down isn't too high, but when a PSU fails it almost always takes something else with it (like your GPU, or motherboard).

Perhaps one like this would be good. It's not 80+ rated (but the Raidmax isn't either). And it's available in Canada where the OP lives.

There is nothing all too wrong with the CX series, but for the price there can be some better alternatives. They would be fine for PC with just the iGPU, or a lower powered discreet card (like the 750ti, or 950), but probably not the best choice for a build with a 380X. Anyways, I think even a CX series would still be better by a long shot than the Raidmax that OP has right now.

The only thing I would be worried about is that Raidmax PSU. Raidmax is not a reputable PSU vendor, and over all their PSU's are a bit.....sketch. I would upgrade that first chance to a better unit from a company like Seasonic, XFX, EVGA (but not the NEX series), or Corsair (but not the CX series). Overall though, not a bad build.

I would advise against the Corsair CX PSU, since some of the components are not so good quality. There are better options for the price. Look for EVGA (but not the NEX series), SeaSonic, XFX, or a different series corsair PSU.
