What do you think of my build?

Hey guys, I just wanted some input on my build before I go ahead and make a stupid decision and purchase it. Mostly looking for a high end gaming computer, let me know if there's anything you'd change, etc.!

Also, I'm having trouble deciding between the HD 7970 or the 770 right now. What would you choose?

Thanks in advance for the help!
