Updated the CPU to 4790K with Z97 motherboard, added CPU cooler. Memory works in pairs so better with 2 8GB sticks, added an SSD. Those GPU's are ridiculously expensive, and EVGA 970's are noisy, replaced with quieter at a better price. Corsair RM PSU not great, replaced with top quality PSU.

That case is a small mid tower, I wouldn't put SLI GPU's in it, would recommend a large mid tower or small full tower. Have added a suggestion of the Phanteks Enthoo Pro, but that can easily be replaced with something else you like.
