Consider sharing the planned uses for the build to help get more focused feedback. If just for gaming - what types of games, what game graphic setting expectations, fps expectations, etc.

I like your build a lot. Maybe because it is very similar to my build complete just a few weeks ago. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/RedCedar/saved/nPGxFT

My one thought for a possible change and it's a small one - look for 1600, 1866, or even 2133 ram. They can often be found for a price very similar to the 1333 ram that you have listed. The Asus Z97a motherboard can be set to use those higher speeds in its simple to use bios features or windows based asus optimization program.
