Need Opinion on part list. First time Building a Gaming PC

Hi everyone, this is my first time building a computer. Can you take a look at it and tell me if everything is okay? Also tell me if I should add/delete anything. This gaming PC is meant so I can play games on ultra quality. I am planning sometime later down the road to SLI my graphic card ( that is why I have a large power supply) , but not in the foreseeable future. That being said, do you think I need extra aftermarket cooling fans to go with the current build that I have? Or is the ones built into my case as well as the default cooling fans in the CPU and GPU sufficient.

I am also planning to buy a 1440p monitor sometime soon. Can you guys give me suggestions on what is a decent monitor at 1440p?

Also I don't plan on overclocking because I am not too familiar with it. So my question is do you think my i7 4790 is sufficient without the "K".

Also do you think my motherboard is good enough? Or will it bottleneck my performance.

My part list is as follows (click on the link) http://pcpartpicker.com/p/RnxTpg

Thank you!! I am planning to play games like Elder Scroll, Total War, Dota 2 if that helps. :)

If going SLI, i would add probably 2 fans or so to increase airflow.

4790 is fine without the K, it is basically the same thing but just locked.

Mobo is fine

Wifi card is overpriced but...

Changed the PSU to 1000W (SLI in mind) 1300 is overkill

2400Mhz isnt a good idea.

For 3 bucks more, i got you a 1TB 7200 WD Blue drive

Everything else is fine
