~$2,200 build, would appreciate input

I've been planning out this build for about a month, talking with different people at different places, and doing a lot of reading and watching of things on my parts during my free time. I think I finally have the parts as I want them, and I hope to buy this weekend. However, if anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks a lot for any help!

I'm aware they are great cards, but I'm not switching off Nvidia, at least not now when G-sync is just starting to happen. Not to mention Shadowplay, PhysX, and my general familiarity with the software, Nvidia just has a lot of other features that appeal to me.

I was actually gonna say if you like those features go for it, but I thought of it while I was at the park with the kiddies. Im more of a bang vs. buck guy and hopefully when all the new GPUs come out Nvidia will drop the 780 prices.

Unless they cut back on production of the 780s making them hard enough to find, justifying a stay in price

Also you think G-Sync is worth the stupid high price monitor you have to get ?

Definitely. This is going to be the cheapest G-sync monitor available, and I really think G-sync is going to be worth it from everything I've heard of people who have used it. The high price is the only real downside, that and a tiny performance hit of a few frames that wont even matter because, with G-sync, as long as you have 30-60 frames you get super smooth frames, even if they aren't steady. Here's a good example in Star Citizen. Plus it's a 144hz monitor, so it looks great with G-sync off if you don't need it on in some games, and g-sync aside the monitor has great reviews.

Oh I like G-Sync, just not at this price. Also can't wait to play Star Citizen.
