Your storage and stuff is fine.

I'd upgrade to a 1070 (EVGA FTW is my personal preference, but if you want a neutral color, you can go with the Strix from ASUS)

I'd also get a 6600k with an ASUS pro gaming aura or z170a gaming m5 (ASUS as a mobo company gets my pick). Any ddr4 2400 ram from gskill or corsair or crucial is good

Finally, I'd get a cryorig H5 utimate or universal and keep the fans included with the heatsink. You could also try the dark rock 3 from be quiet!

If you want to upgrade a current build I would keep you mobo and go for the i7 4790k, add some faster ram, a nice gold rated psu, and if the 770 is starting to choke on some games for you, depending on your monitor rez & refresh, either a 1060 or 1070.

Maybe a better cpu cooler if you want to overclock (A nice water loop if one will fit in your case? This is a cheap 240mm rad that's getting killer reviews - http://pcpartpicker.com/product/Dt8H99/arctic-cooling-cpu-cooler-acfre00013a ).
