If you don't intend on OC, then get a 4690 processor instead of a 4690k, the k signifies that the processor can OC and it costs extra money make sure you have an HDMI cable and HDMI monitor because the 770 is a HDMI only card, no VGA. (Or you can get a DVI monitor)

Ok thank you. Can I reduce the power supply to 450w?

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

What is your required amount of wattage? You will want to go 50 or so above reccomended incase something starts working to hard, in which case you'll need extra power. Also, do not worry about extra wattage frying your mobo or anything. The PC takes only as much power as it needs.
