Just want to make sure that the setup I have is enough to do gaming. I'm trying to keep it under 750$ but want to be able to play games at a decent frame rate. Any tips or feedback is appreciated!

It is enough for gaming but i don't fully understand this build. You could've gone with amd to cut the price even lower and squeeze a 760 or 270x. But i think you want to get a better gpu in the future, so you decided to get a 'k' edition i5. Am i right? But in that case why the 90mm cooler? Are you not planning to overclock it? I suspect that fan that ramps up to 2800rpm can be quite loud. And it won't let you overclock that much. That's why i don't really understand it.

If you're not planning to OC you can drop that CPU cooler. And I advise changing cards to this as it's better and currently much cheaper http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-02gp43757kr
