Intel Build with the new Corsair Obsidian 450D! Opinions please!

Hi guys, so I've been planning my first build for quite a long time now. I've been through lots of different part lists but I'm pretty settled on this build at the moment:

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/MXRH8d

I basically want an all around power house! It will be used for pretty much everything including gaming, programming, graphic design etc.

I need a new monitor with it so was thinking 23", with a second monitor in the near future. I have also been thinking about a single 27" monitor but really can't decide, shouldn't matter too much at the moment though.

Anyway what do you guys think? Any tips or things you think I should change?

Thanks, Ollie

Just another comment. The superclocked version of the graphics card is actually cheaper: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-02gp42765kr

I don't think it looks as cool though! Probably have that instead though to be fair.

Max budget?

I don't really want to push it any higher, probably max £1300. I would push it a bit but basically want to keep it in the range it's at.

Why not this instead?
