Looking for opinions on my first build

Basically this is my first build I picked out a few components that I like, now Im just looking for some other opinions and information. For example I'd like to know If there are any compatibility issues or if you would change anything because I am new to this and don't know much.

If you think I should make some changes keep it within $1400 - $1700
(Also a big thing is if parts are reliable, And if you think I should get a different component tell me why because I am still new to this.)

I do ALOT of gaming of a wide variety but, I also do a lot of web browsing and movie watching.

Also if you have any suggestions on monitors, keyboards, mice, it would be appreciated.

if you want to buy a all-in-one watercooler, the swiftech h220 is the best choice.
gigabyte z77 ud3h is a very good motherboard, paying more not needed, also your selected motherboard is mATX, ATX is recommended
