Are you going to be overclocking? If not, then you can drop the CPU cooler because the CPU comes with the stock one. More importantly, if you do plan to overclock, you need to get the unlocked version; the 4690K.

Other than that, everything looks nice. The 760 should be able to handle most of your games on Ultra at decent FPS. For more intensive games like Battlefield 4, Metro Last Light, Etc, you'll probably need to turn it down to High.
