Haswell Gaming Build ($1400)

For a new build i am deciding to go with a haswell build. The i7 processor is for other programs that i am going to be using such as photoshop, Cinema 4D, Vegas. I dont need an SSD to start with and if i decide later on then i can add one in.

I am going to OC
1080p 120hz monitor
no microcenter
maybe sli
prefer intel cpu

so this is the build i came up with:
