New Build Opinions Needed

My current computer is a pre built Dell computer. While it did what I needed to at the time it is now outdated by my standards. This time around I'm looking at building my own computer. This computer is for serious gaming, so keep that in mind. My budget is $1500.

Hard Drive: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 128GB
Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1866 (Already purchased at $105)
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670k
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Hero
Graphics Card: EVGA GTX 770 superclocked w/ ACX Cooling
Case: Cooler Master HAF X
Power Supply: CORSAIR TX Series 750W

Any comments or criticisms are welcome. I'm mainly checking to make sure everything is compatible.

    You're going to fill that SSD is no time. You need either a secondary HDD, or a bigger SSD
  2. Hi Brickfoot7!

    I would say that 16GB of ram is extreme, but if you can afford it, why not?

    Everything look compatible, except for the motherboard. That is probably a "VI" instead of a "IV". Is this the motherboard that you're referring to.

    Yes it is, I always get roman numerals mixed up.

    Alright, would a 1TB Seagate Barracuda work well as a secondary HDD?
