Everything else is perfect

Thanks, but whats wrong with a i5 4670k?

4690K is cooler (as in temp.), is better for overclocking and newer also, plus it is the same price or 10 bucks more

Cant beat that !! Last question, would and gtx 780 work? I see people in Hoop-La over which version to pick.

You can get a 290 for significantly less and performs slightly better while giving you an extra gb of vram. The windforce 290 is on sale for 360 right now.

Just get a 290, itll be better for gaming. If possible the Sapphire vapor x 290 is best choice, otherwise go Asus, Msi or gigabyte. Get a Seagate 1TB Hybrid hard drive instead of the Caviar black one and also get a 840 Evo instead of pro

I'd switch the 780 to a 290 (like I said in my other post). Would also ditch the 840 pro, it will make 0 difference in the real world between it and an evo, an mx100, or an xlr8. Take a look at one of those options instead. Also a 1tb black drive isn't particularly worth it either, stick with a normal 1tb caviar blue or a seagate barracuda, you'll notice next to no difference between them.
