I am looking at getting the parts soon but just want to check if all the parts are compatible, if they can handle every game out there ad be able to host the occasional game as well. also used for work/college aswell as the heavy gaming

They're compatible, but I'd change a few things:

-Dominators are pretty pricey(you can get a 16GB set for 50 £ less) and for gaming, you need only 8 GB of RAM

-most of games don't profit from 4770K's Hyperthreading, so you can get a 4670K instead

-you should get a cheaper board, like a Z87-A, as the board you chose offers a lot of features which you, most likely, won't need

-you should get a cooler like the 212 EVO

-290s are cheaper and they are pretty similar to 780s(in terms of gaming performance), so I'd get one of those..

Hello and welcome.

I believe the build needs some fine tuning in order to get more performance efficient, and good looks.

This is what I'd recommend.
