You didn't post the build. Looked at the one in your saved part list, what are you going to use it for? What is your budget? Do you intend to overclock?

OK, few suggestions for you;

  • The K edition CPU is for overclocking, as you do not intend to overclock I'd recommend the I5 4460, it has a slightly slower clock speed which will make virtually no difference
  • Cheaper equivalents to motherboard and memory, if you wanted those specific ones for a reason then they will work fine
  • A Radeon 280x will perform better than a 760 for just a little more
  • That PSU is not big enough, plus you really want modular in a micro case, excess unused cables block airflow

And by big enough you mean size or watts for the PSU?

Also if i wanted a normal case (not micro) could you give a suggestion for this? it means i would have to get a different motherboard as well right?

Cases are very much personal taste and there a lots of different choices. A good one at a reasonable price is the Corsair 200r http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-case-200r

You can put a micro motherboard in an ATX case, but the smaller board is more fiddly to install, generally best to get an ATX motherboard, this MSI one is just a little more http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-h97pcmate
