Yes, but this PSU is overkill.

Everything should be compatible. The power supply can be lowered probably as a suggestion to maybe lower the costs. If you don't plan on an SLI maybe a good 600w would do. If you do go for SLI, a 850w would probably suffice.

As it stands the build is good, powerful and all the parts are compatible.
As has been said, the PSU is far too much for a single card system 600Watts from: Corsair, Antec, Silverstone, Seasonic, XFX or EVGA with dual 6+2 PCI-E leads will be plenty, even for an overclocked setup, 850Watts from those makers will cover SLI.
Add a better CPU cooler into the build, AMD stock coolers get the job done but are far from quiet.
Consider a SSD for the boot/main programs drive with a 1Tb HDD for primary storage.

The Thermaltake Armor Revo USB 3.0 Full Tower Case comes with 3 180mm fans and the CPU comes with a fan and the GTX 770 comes with 2 fans

The CPU fan AMD supplies is not that good, adding something like the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo into the build will keep things cool, and quiet, but it's just a suggestion to make an already good system a little better.
