This is my first gaming build. I will mainly be doing moderate to heavy gaming. Later I might be going back to school for drafting so I will be using auto cadd. I tried to build some of it with looking into how games are changing these days. please give me feed back. I dont want to go cheap but then I dont want to go really expensive. Im trying to stay in the medium range.

Awesome build. The only thing I would change is the power supply. That is way overpriced for 750Ws on a Semi Modular Platform. Look at EVGAs PSUs, they're amazing and a lot cheaper. I own two of their PSUs and love em both. Also that Corsair model is outdated.

looks pretty good. The one thing I'd change is the PSU. I'd get an 850w so that you can have ample room to add another 780 and overclock your CPU. I'd recommend the EVGA Supernova 850 G2: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20850xr it was rated 9.9 out of 10 by JonnyGuru, and is cheaper than the one you have on your list. Also, wait until the i7 4790k is released (june 25th) as the 4790k has a significantly higher clock speed, as well as much better overclocking potential (there is a real chance of hitting 5GHz on water if you're lucky).
