It's a 43" Sony Bravia 4k .
Model: KD43XE8077

Was being used for consoles until I decided to convert back to PC gaming.
After adjusting some of the settings the games look stunning in 4096 x 2160 resolution.
 
Yes, it's a 1000w PSU.
I plan on adding a second graphic card at some point down the line.
I originally went with a 650w, but was recommended to use a 1000w as the 650w would not be powerful enough.

SLI graphics is never recommended, you'll get much more performance out of a single better card.
 
I had a SLI setup on my previous gaming PC, which was two Geforce GTX 1070 cards.
I was told that it would be an issue, but never had any problems.

The only problem I ever had (if you can call it a problem) was that my antivirus software sometimes stopped me from activating the SLI.

Not planning on getting the extra card at the moment, as I do not need it for the time being.

You won't get any significant problems but the "problem" is that you won't get any significant gains either.

Have you added an M2 drive? It's unusual to see such a high performance system with a low performing SSD. I'm also not sure how that cooler will fair after a heavy gaming session. They aren't the best. Were you not recommended a Corsair unit? Did the recommendations come from here?

Your tv will be 4K 60, so putting sli isn’t going to net you any benefits as you’re capped at 60fps. Plus, most games now don’t support sli.
 
No M2 drive yet, but I am considering it.

I've tested the following games on maxed out graphic settings in 4096 x 2160 resolution and have no issues with it so far using this cooler.

The Witcher 3
Elite Dangerous
GTA V
Mass Effect - Andromeda
The Division 2
Battlefront
Battlefield V
Wolfenstein
Control
Total War
Mad Max
Mafia 3
Crackdown 3
Gears of War 4
