Any help, changes, advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated :) 

P.S. All this roughly comes to $1250 in my country

Not bad, can you get a Samsung 840 EVO SSD for about the same price ? I like the build, go with the 4670K, can you get this Motherboard? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I really like ASRock as a motherboard manufacturer and have had the best luck in building computers for people with theirs. You looking for a monitor suggestion?

We do have some items but very limited I'll take a look around. I saw an ASRock Z87 Extreme 4? Any other suggestions for Mobo?
Haha if you have any monitor suggestion, would be tops mate.
I'll have to check about the ssd :) 

Will all my components be compatible?

Yes just be sure you get a Z87 Motherboard to go with your i5-4670K. And The Extreme6 is ideal, the Extreme4 is pretty good, but if you can get the Extreme6 go with that. ASUS Z87 PRO is also good, MSI Z87-GD65, Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H are all good choices of motherboard. And if you can get this monitor I really like it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
