I've never built a computer before and am just wondering if these components are good choices or if there are better alternatives, I'm going for a very good gaming pc for around $1600

Oh boy, theres a lot that needs to be changed. First of all, do you want to get the newest haswell i7? How about the new GTX 780? You should get a bigger case, try the Cooler Master 932. The power supply is a bit pricy. Get a dual channel RAM kit, no need for a quad channel. Everything else is pretty good.

770 > 680 due to more power delivery, a better gpu boost and better vram

I think the GTX 780 is just a little bit too expensive and I looked up some benchmarks and saw that it wasn't much of a difference, same with the new 4770k intel processors is it really worth it? And the case I've chosen is just shy of the clearance needed to fit in my desk. I will consider getting a less expensive power supply and ram. Thanks for the recommendation

Are you looking to Overclock? If not, you don't need that cpu. Intel i5's are good for gaming also, so think about that aswell. I recommend Dual Channel Corsair Vengeance 8gb ram. That power supply can be changed also. Seasonic is one of the best manufacturers. Research the amount of watts your parts need and go for a psu that has an extra 2-300 watts, for room to upgrade later on. Get a modular one if you want nice airflow.

I most likely will not overclock, I took your suggestions of choosing a seasonic power supply and corsair dual channel ram. The power supply also works with the amount of wattage the parts need.

K, do what you prefer, but if you're not going to overclock, I would recommend using the stock cpu cooler that comes with the cpu. If you want, you can install a cpu cooler. Take note, the mobo can be changed to more of a budget mobo, but depending on how many gpu's ur gonna use, and the quality you want, I recommend MSI. Look at their mobos, I like them. Overall, the parts now looks good. No Problem. :D
