More about components compatible good
  1. components are good....is your psu the corsair gs700???

    also, why do you need a z87 chipset board for a non 'k' processor??
  2. If you plan on overclocking, change the CPU to a i7-4770k. If not, change the motherboard to a H87.
  3. Best answer
    1) If your i7 is the non-k version, then you don't have to buy the z87 motherboard, because it usually is for ocing the K version cpu and it is more expensive than the other H87/B85 MB.
    2) When you shop the case, make sure a) the GPU will fit, like your gtx770 is 11.5" long, most of manufacturer will post that detail. Like this one ( under the specification tab). http://www.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/case/ultra-tower/cosmos-2.html
    3) The case will can bottom-mounted PSU for better airflow, also can cable management under the MB, USB3.0, etc. Usually I don't recommend the case because it is the personal preferences like the shape, color, with or without window on the side, etc.

    I'm not planning on overclocking so I will chose a H87.
    And I don't know anything about PSU's, also what PSU would I need if I chosen a GTX 780 ti video card instead?
  5. if you choose a 780ti...i would recommend this:

    as for your case you can choose any full tower or most mid tower cases should be fine, choose whatever appeals to you best
