Opinions and advices about my build

hey,
so im planing to buy a new high end gaming pc this week and i've been looking around and searching for the best possible build i could get within my budget, and im pretty happy with my final build.
i just want to ask for your opinions about the pc, maybe some of the parts are not compatible or maybe they just suck ;) 
anyway this is my build:

Intel Quad Core i5 4670K 3.4Ghz S1150
Asus Z87-K S1150
8GB (2x4GB) Crucial Balistix Sport DDR3 CL9 1600Mhz
NVIDIA Gigabyte GTX780Ti WindForce 3GB GDDR5
Seagate 1T 3.5'' Sata3 Barracuda 3 Years Warranty
NZXT Phantom 410 Black + FSP Raider 650W 80+ Silver BUNDLE
Scythe Ninja 3

just acouple side notes about the build-
so
1.im planing to OC both my CPU and my GPU
2.about the gtx780TI, it's not full price, im actually getting it for 550 dollarish.
3.i can get the same bundle only with 750W instead of 650W, but it's more expensive, obviously so im wondering if 650 will do.
4.should i go with the i7 4770K or the I5 4670K? im mostly gaming and not multitasking but i heard that games are starting to utilize more cores so im wondering if HyperThreading is worth the extra money.

so yeah that's about it, what do you guys think :) ?
(sorry from the english, not my native lang ;) )

1. you are on right track for OC
2. yeah nice price!
3. 650w is enough if you not going for SLI!
4. i5 is enough for gaming , i7 wont give you much benifit as you said you going for only gaming! , however hyperthreading may be usefull with extra cores if you doing highly rendering or hard level of work..

That sounds like a very solid build. I would DEFINITELY go for the 750w PSU if you plan to OC both CPU and GPU.

The 4770k is a better choice if you want to stream, serious editing, etc. As far as gaming goes, the 4670k is totally perfect.

so about the PSU, your saying i should take the 750W to be on the safe side, but 650W will do?
or 650W will simply not do for OC.

tnx for the help guys ;)  very quick answers
what do you guys think of the CPU cooler? the cpu cooler is like the only part i picked by taking the most expensive one haha, becouse i really dont have the slightest idea about cpu coolers and they are overall much cheaper in comperasson to the other components.

As far as the PSU goes, I would personally would not run that build on a 650w. If I had that build and planned to OC both CPU and GPU, I would get an 850w. But you should be fine with a 750w, you'll just be cutting it close.

I don't think you said which cooler you're getting.

haha it's not really 550$, the thing is, here in israel everything is expensive as f*ck, and the 780TI costs 3500Shekels here, that's about 1000$, and there is a sale on the 780TI becouse it's new, so i can get it for 3000Shekels, so 850Dollarish.
but telling you it's 550$ is just so you can get the right prespective about the price, since the R9 290 for exemple costs almost 700$ here so all the cards costs more not just the 780TI.
so like, to me 850-900Dollars, is the same as 550-600Dollar to you.
it sucks but there is nothing i can do about it really haha, shipping a card to israel from the US or whatever costs about the same so yeah.

anyway the PSU im getting is Scythe Ninja 3, im pretty sure i wrote it but whatever, i know it's good enough buy im wondering maybe it's an overkill

I would get a better CPU cooler. With all those high-end components and your plan to OC it, I would get something along the lines of a Corsair h100i. It's a bit more expensive, but worth it.

It's fine, but depending on the price, you might want to consider a closed loop liquid cooler like the Corsair H100i.

:\ the H100i is water cooling, it's very expensive, and well i dont think it's really needed, do you really think i need one?
im only planing to do a nice OC not an extreme one, im hoping for 4GHZish is water cooling really necessary?
the H100i costs 175$ while the current cooler is 60$ it's almost triple the price.
what do you think?
oh and where do you stand on the PSU? should i get the 650W or the 750W? well ofcorse the 750 will be better but my question is will the 650W do

Wow that expensive. Then stick with the air cooler, it will do fine for your OC.

A 650W PSU will do.

ty i will ;)  so the Ninja 3 will be enough right?
and 650W will be enough even thou im overclocking both my CPU and PCU? the 780TI uses about 270W Max underload dunno about the 4670K.

and what do you guys think of the MOBO?
i have some other options got MOBOs and im considering to replace the Asus Z87-K with a gigabyte one.
i had some in mind.
the Gigabyte G1.Sniper B5 for exemple, would cost me about 50$ less since he is on sale, and he looks pretty good but diff chipset and other stuff that are kind of a turn off.
another one i was thinking about is this one - Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H, he costs only like 3$ more then the ASUS Z87-K so they cost about the same.
so Z87-K vs Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H (both the same price) or the Gigabyte G1.Sniper B5 for 50$ less
the thing about the Gigabyte G1.Sniper B5 is that he got a B85 chipset and im not sure it's compatible with my system since the other MOBO's are using a Z87 chipset, i think haha. plus i dont think the b85 is even able to OC, and i heard he lacks performance in when compared to the Z87, im not sure about this specific card thou, talking about the chipset

The i5-4670k has a max TDP of 84W.

As for the board I personally stay away from Asus because last 2 boards I had gave me problems. My Gigabyte board I'm currently using is fine.
As to what board you should get, you should compare features and get what you need. Also see user reviews at sites like Newegg.

well the gigabyte MOBO got a better review score at NEWEGG and had more reviews overall, but most of the people i ask says they prefer the ASUS one -_-

when i was comparing features i saw a couple things:
1.the gigabyte one supports sli, and im using nvidia so it's allways good to future proof.
2.the Asus one got a Display Port, wich is the newest and best Video Port at the moment, dunno how much i need it atm but it's good to future proof no?
3.the gigabyte one have 2 more USB 3 ports then the ASUS one
4.the gigabyte one is smaller since he is a micro ATX

but i still cant decide wich to take
what do you think?

If those are your only options, I'd pick the Asus Z87-K just because the size of micro ATX boards are not good for SLI. The DisplayPort on the board is not really a selling point because you won't be running on the IGP.

well the asus one does not support sli at all, since it's second pcie 16x runs at 4x if im not mistaking, and nvidia sli needs atleast 8x

i think im going to go with the asus one but i would really like more opinions

Ah I didn't notice that. Looks like the Gigabyte board is better if you get an Nvidia GPU.

The Asus Z87-K won't do SLI, but supports Crossfire.
