PFF! heck yeah!. However, two things to point out - swap out the 770's for amd's new r9 280x cards (they are $100 cheaper than the 770 and perform better) and get at least a 850 watt psu.

Other than that it looks good.

Well of course it will You're spending $800 on graphics alone. For most games you won't reach 144 fps on max settings at 1080p though. Also, you clearly have the money. Just go for an i5-4670k instead of an FX-8350.

Your both wrong, the 770 performs BETTER than the r9 280x but the difference is very tiny and the card is 100$ cheaper so it's obvious that you'll go for the r9 280x.

Not sure how I'm wrong though lol.
I said it doesn't perform better. Anyway, I trust Nvidia more when it comes to drivers.

Actually, the 280x performs significantly better in allot of benchmarks (however, the 770's are at stock clocks but still!)- http://www.anandtech.com/show/7400/the-radeon-r9-280x-r...

Also, take a look at how the toxic version of the 280x performs compared to a 770 - http://www.anandtech.com/show/7406/the-sapphire-r9-280x...
