A couple comments:

I'm going to assume this is a gaming build given that you put a GTX 780 in there.

The motherboard you selected will not let the CPU to be overclocked. If you intend to OC, then you need to get a Z87 motherboard, otherwise, you can downgrade the CPU to the i5-4670 (non K).

Also, I suppose you need those 4TB of storage, otherwise, that's an easy cut as you can get a 7200rpm 1TB disk which will perform much better and 1TB is enough for most people.

The PSU could be better too.

Here's a proposed build with the changes I mentioned incorporated:

First thanks for giving me a solution but I wanted to say that I have no intention to OC so which build should I consider getting?
