    Great build! Only thing I'd change is the PSU. I'd get the SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze instead. Why? Best manufacturer on the planet. Modular (Enermax isn't...really important to make cabling easier). Plenty of power for any GPU (620W). Slightly cheaper. Win win win.
  2. Solid build , Every part is compatible , You might want to take the 4770k model and a cooler with the 60$ remaining . You might want to overclock in the future
