If you have some advise it could be cool :)

same card.

That is not a good PSU, you need to get a better one. Why do you need 16 gigs of ram? For gaming 8gb is enough.. Also get a Z97 motherboard as Z87 requires a bios update for devils canyon (4690k and 4790k) to work. Avoid the anniversary edition boards by asrock.

I really don't think the 16gb is worth it either, but here's a more optimized version with these changes in mind:

replace that 212 evo by a 212 plus, the plus is the quieter version of the evo
