After a month of researching I picked this pc build with a budget of $600: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2F3FmG

I would like anyone to look over the build and see if there will be any problems such as bottlenecking, if it all will fit in the case, or if some parts aren't compatible.

And, if I can buy a GTX 760 SC and just put it in my computer without having to buy anything extra and without any problems.

Thanks

P.S. Windows 8.1 or Windows 7? Can't decide :P

Get Win7. I know more people who are annoyed at the changes with Win8/8.1 than who actually like it. Win7 is much more familiar to use and it is a bit older, meaning that there are more fixes and service packs available.

Youll be fine with a 760 SC. Also, get Windows 8.1

No bottle necking here
