Looks good I would add a 120-128GB SSD as OS/program drive. I am presuming the PSU size is based on later to go with SLI.

Yeah 770 SLI will be able to handle pretty much everything :p  and how much would a SSD cost me?

-Better combo on the cpu and motherboard. $60 off! Still a high quality board.
-Cheaper ram.
-Added in a SSD.
-Better quality case.
-Cheaper psu, still high quality. Enough to handle SLI and overclock.

I would really advise a different case. The Thermaltake one is a low-quality case, it's out of place.
Try to cancel the order on the case.

Thermaltake cases are fine regardless of personal opinions. They make them for every budget and I have come a cross a lot more flimsy cases than theirs.
