First time build for gaming $1000-1200

Hello, this is my first time building a computer. I've been going around forums doing research, and have come up with this build:

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor

Motherboard: ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

Storage: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

Video Card: ASUS GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5 GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Case: Cooler Master Storm Enforcer ATX Mid Tower Case

Power Supply: Corsair Builder 500W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply

Monitor: Asus VE228H 21.5” LED Monitor

Keyboard: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Wired Gaming Keyboard

I have the OS and a mouse already.

Budget-wise, I was aiming for around 1000-1200, which, with taxes, I went over with this build.

Are there ANY problems with this build? (compatibility issues, etc.)

    For 1200 dollars you should instead go for this build. It is much better when it comes to gaming performance as it has a 770 which of course is better than a 760. Also the PSU i selected is of very high quality.
