Need Review of Possible Build

Below are a list of all the parts going into my build atm. I am going for a high performance PC that can run at least BF4 on max graphics without any lag. I really want to stick to the solid state drive for the operating system and then have a larger mechanical storage. If there is a part that is overkill or that needs to be upgraded please let me know. If any parts aren't compatible with each other that would also be greatly appreciated. Also if there is something that i really should get (like bluetooth) that would be a good thing to know. I generally have no idea about the power supply. Thanks.

  1. why the hell are you using a workstation gfx in a gaming build? instad of quadro go with GF GTX 770, it should max out BF4 in 1080p res. also drop down to a i5-4670K, it will give you almost the same performance as a 4770K but with a 100$ cheaper price tag. also go with 8GB instead of 16, even the most demanding games require only 4GB.
  2. looks acceptable but i wouldnt buy mcafee(a horrible antivirus. waste of money, there are better free ones). also, i would buy a newer gpu(something like a gtx 760(or even a titan if you REALLY want to spend some cash))
