Couple suggestions:

GPU: I'd consider switching to a 290 instead of a 770. It performs better at every resolution last I checked and gives you double the VRAM for just a bit more.

I'd switch the case to a 450D or another midtower to save a bit of money because fulltowers are really only worth having if you're doing a full custom loop or 3-4 GPUs in the system.

Would change the power supply to this instead. You get a full modular instead of semi mod and save around 40 bucks too.

Thanks for the quick response! As to your comments I'll probably switch the gpu. Also, the only reason I went with the 750d was because I wanted the big window on the case. I'll probably switch the psu too. Thanks

Take a look at the 450D, it's basically a slightly smaller 750D.

Looks solid to me. Nothing really wrong with any of your choices.

Personally I prefer AMD's 280 to the Nvidia, but that's no big deal. I would also double the size of your SSD with a Crucial 100 for another $25 or 30.

I would also go with a mid tower case for a build like this. I like Corsair. Probably something like the C70. I managed to fit 2 270X's in the last build I did with room to spare with the C70. But again, just personal preference.

I only wanted the OS to be installed on the Ssd so I got a small one. I will be switching the case too. Thanks
