Video editing build: Combination of 4790k/Asus z97 WS and GTX 770, and questions about physical build

Hi friends... This is an updated version to my first draft of a build. I intend to use this computer for video editing, including 4k video: Adobe Premier, Davinci Resolve, etc. Mostly I'd like feedback on two things: 1) the CPU/GPU/MOBO combination, and 2) What are the main issues that I need to pay attention to in terms of physical compatability inside the case: the dimensions of the RAM, will the water cooler and fans fit, etc?

The Intel Core i7-4790k is on sale for pretty cheap right now, which is how I ended up with it. The Asus z97 WS I practically picked at random because I couldn't figure out what was really separating the vairous Z97 boards out there. The EVGA GTX 770 2GB Superclocked I picked as kind of a compromise b/t other 2GB GPUs and the 4GB version of this card. I am not clear how much of a difference having a 2GB vs a 4GB card will make?

Thanks so much, this forum is AWESOME!
