Honestly that build is perfect! Only change I would make would be to go with a closed loop liquid cooler if you want to be able to overclock your CPU to ~4.5Ghz (max for Haswell) due to its high heat output.

That would work, although I would suggest the H100i for just a couple more dollars, and it looks like your case can support that radiator no problem.

Are you sure the H100i fits in my case? Is there still enough space to add another videocard in a few years?

your spending 1400USD.
Then why your buying from Cheap and unreliable manufacturers liek MSI.names of parts are same but a ASUS made GTx780 will out perform a GTX-780 made by MSI or EVGA.
Actually buying parts is a tricking thing what most of self made professors don't know.They will say NO NO that is fine this fine but they only have internet information they don't even know how that part work in real time condition what they are giving you. so listen to guys have sold points not all.

This is a rig much powerful and reliable then others.
Performance+Reliability on Parts is the thing worth paying.
For Example Coolermaster is very good in cooling solutions like Air coolers water coolers and fans but their PSUs sucks.but corsair is good to in cooling solutions and they are also making top level PSUs

You completely forgot the OS and optical drive. In case you were paying any attention at all to his build, you would see that those are included in the $1400, making it impossible to fit a GTX 780 in his budget. As for brands, MSI is a perfectly reliable brand, no more so than ASUS, it's just personal preference as to which you want to get.
