First time PC Builder looking for help :D

So I'm a first time PC builder who has little knowledge about the arts of PC building. I'm looking for a PC that can run games like Archeage and Payday 2 on max graphics. I would also like the build to last for the next 2~3 years before I have to start upgrading components. The budget is around $1000~$1500. Here is my proposed build:

Type Item Price
CPU Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor $339.99 @ Newegg
CPU Cooler NZXT HAVIK 120 75.8 CFM CPU Cooler $49.98 @ OutletPC
Motherboard Asus Z97-PRO ATX LGA1150 Motherboard $179.99 @ Newegg
Memory Kingston Fury Black Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory $79.99 @ NCIX US
Storage Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $160.98 @ Amazon
Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX 770 2GB Superclocked ACX Video Card $324.99 @ NCIX US
Case NZXT Phantom 410 (Gunmetal/Black) ATX Mid Tower Case $89.98 @ OutletPC
Power Supply XFX XTR 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply $94.99 @ NCIX US
Total
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available $1290.89

I realise that this build would probably look pretty funny to some of you experienced builders, but help would be very much appreciated. :P

i5 4690K paired with a GTX 780 will do better for gaming.
