Overall good build, however unless u are doing heavy 3d rendering and very CPU consuming processes and games that processor is a bit overkill, consider switching from that i7 to an i5 4670K which u can then overclock and using that money to get a GTX 780 instead of the GTX 770 :p 
The other stuff should be good :)

I'm pretty sure he mentioned CAD in there, didn't he?

The computer should work great for the things you need it for. Just keep in mind that you still need an OS as well as an optical drive.

You might want to consider 16GB RAM if you're going to do a lot of CAD. If you don't work THAT much with CAD 8GB would be just fine.

I'll leave it be FTM. I'll upgrade the ram and fans if and once needed.
