Please critique and provide imformation on things maybe you'd do different. I already have a 840 pro SSD so i don't need that nor do i need windows. I'm more interested in if everything will be compatible and possible money savers.

It is $100 cheaper, yet it has 2 760s instead of 1. Hope you like it, and let me know if you have any questions or want something changed/added to the build :) 
Edit: didn't see the second 760, sorry! The build I selected is still probably better, except CPU which is easy to fix if you want to spend a bit more. It would save you money. The PSU is also better. Corsair builder series aren't supposed to be that good.

Don't get two 760s, get a single 770 instead. Then add a second 770 later on. A Z77 motherboard won't work with an i5-4670K, you will need a Z87 motherboard instead. And the CX 750 is definitely not the best PSU you can get.

A little bit over but this will be a much more effective use of $1300:

The 760s destroy it. The argument is that you can add one later, but why settle for less now? Not only that, but its not a massive improvement.

Why get 2 760's and be limited again when a single 770 can max games out and when you want, add another for more performance? Hm...
