In the future, I may add a hard drive, and possibly another video card. Maybe CPU upgrade. My question: is the currently selected power supply overkill? Would I be better off going with a 850, 750, or even 560? Seasonic of course!
What kind of hardware would really require a full 1000W power supply?
Here is my current build, advice appreciated:

Yes, the power supply is technically overkill but going overboard on a power supply is never a bad thing if you can afford it. The less you tax a power supply the more efficient and reliable your PC stays. A power supply will lose life by placing a significant amount of stress over many years. Putting it in a position to never be stressed or maxed out ensures the power supply will last throughout the system's use.
Based on that information, I'm confident you will make the decision that's right for you.
