Hello :) 

I've used a long time to study which parts do I want, and to be very safe I found a lot of watt. I want to be 100% safe and secure that this will work out!

Can you tell me if all those hardware components does work well together and if it can fit in the case etc. please?

My rig below:

Cooler Master HAF X Big Tower Sort ( case )
MSI Z87-G45 Gaming, Socket-1150 ( mobo )
Intel Core i7-4770K Processor ( cpu )
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 780 3GB PhysX CUDA ( gpu )
Crucial DDR3 BallistiX Sport 16GB KIT ( ram )
Corsair HX 750W PSU ( the gold 80 plus ) ( psu )
Kingston HyperX 3K SSD 120GB 2.5" ( ssd )
Samsung SyncMaster P2450 24" ( monitor )

I don't want to waste any money, so I want to be 100% sure!

The build seems great! Well balanced GPU and CPU, a good PSU as well, the only thing I would do is maybe get a higher watt PSU, something like a 1000w Seasonic Psu but only if you plan on SLI in the future...

Thanks. Do you know if they will all fit in the case perfectly ? I've thinking about doing SLI 2x gtx 780, but I'm not really sure, and if I won't do it, then it's a lot of money to waste.

And what more do I need? Windows 7 pack. And a DVD-drive. Is a sound card only for speakers or for headset too? Do I need a network card? Or can my motherboard handle the network itself?

If you are going for 2 GPU then also your case is fine, but it may look very compact!
The rest things you want is a: surely a windows 7 CD, Sound card is for both Headset and speaker, And network card is only needed when you are going to surf internet on it. If you put any network card then it will use up your PCI slot, so make sure you have it empty. BTW you mobo doesn't have a network card. You can buy one for $10-50

—Choose it as best answer if it helped you! :)

I'm not going to use wireless internet, but a cable. Can my motherboard handle that? Also, do I really need a soundcard now ?

You wont need a "Network card" for wired internet, you motherboard will be able to handle it and from personal experience I don't see the point in having a sound card, although I only use headphones, I get good sound quality without a soundcard, in terms of OS, just go with whatever you prefer, if you don't plan on changing motherboard then just get an OEM copy... In terms of Optical drive, just make sure your motherboard has enough room for a few more SATA cables and you should be fine. You dont have a HHD in your build which worries me... also, which country are you buying from?

thanks,
-Duffy.

All I have done here is upgrade the PSU ready for SLI as you mentioned you planned on it, your motherboard should be fine in terms of PCI and SATA slots, I also added a 1tb HDD as you hadn't mentioned one before hand. The only thing i would suggest is because you have a K edition CPU I presume you're going to OC, that being said I would get some kind of cooling for your CPU.

I would strongly recommend getting a HDD, and if you're not overclocking then I would recommend just getting a i7-4770 as the K just means that the processor is unlocked for overclocking so it would make very little difference and save you the equivilent of $30 :)

But isn't a SSD much faster than a HDD?

SSD's are much faster but they don't have much storage space, people mainly use them for the Operating System and any games they are playing at the time, a HDD is used for all of the storage of files such as music and movies and anything else that doesn't usually run too often.
