Hey, have just put together a build on Pcpartpicker, looking for some feedback, part suggestions, possible incompatibilities or bottle-necking, and advice on how it should run. All feedback welcome - thanks!

Get gigabyte X-D3H mobo. AsRock mobo is not the best. If you want asrock then get extreme 4 / 6
4770k is better cpu. For baming you are good with 4670k /3570k

Samsung 840 is not so good. It is TLC it is better to take MLC samsung pro or
sandisk ultra plus. 256GB is much better than 120GB SSD they are lot faster.

For cooler better buy is good air cooler. They are much cheaper.

This would be better.

It has more RAM which may or may not be usefull, but it's only 10 dolars more so it's worth it in my opinion.
The motherboard is better for overclocking, while the cooler is a little bit worse.
In the end your CPU overclock will be pretty much the same.
You get two GTX 670 in SLI. They are faster than the GTX 690 which is significantly better performing than the GTX Titan.
The case is just as good, just cheaper.
The power supply is also a high quality unit with enough juice to power your PC even after enthusiast level overclocking.

Thanks lads, i'll take it all into account, one common factor was the mobo, which I have changed to the Gigabyte
GA-Z77X-UD3H, seems like a better choice. The other thing I was a little worried about is the power supply, will 650w be enough, I still am indecisive on overclocking. And the ram, I have gone to vengeance 16g

- New Haswell CPU + compatible motherboard (go for the Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H if you can afford it..)
- Cooling that performs just as good as the Noctua NH-D14 but costs less.
- 8GB RAM as 16GB are not needed if you're not editing video / rendering anything
- 2-way SLI with GTX 670 (which are much stronger than a single GTX770)
- The Corsair 500R is one of the best cases for OC

Enjoy,
Omga4000 :)
