Hey there! I'm looking to build a PC and wanted to get a bit of input on the parts I've got selected so far. I can do a bit of shopping around to find the best deals so I'm not so concerned with where to buy, but more so what to buy. I have come up with the following so far:

http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/2yLeQ

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($244.79 @ DirectCanada)
Motherboard: Asus Z87-A ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($147.38 @ DirectCanada)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($82.60 @ DirectCanada)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($64.79 @ DirectCanada)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card ($259.99 @ Memory Express)
Case: Cooler Master Storm Stryker (White) ATX Full Tower Case ($137.50 @ Vuugo)
Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast 750W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($124.89 @ Newegg Canada)
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($18.00 @ Vuugo)
Total: $1079.94

Like I said, I'm down to shop around a bit once I determine the best parts. My concerns are if there are any visible bottlenecks or any obvious overkill. Ideally I'd like to be able to shave a couple hundred off the total, but I can go over budget a little so long as it's worth it.

Thanks!

Spend less money on the case. Also, you dont need a 750W PSU for that build, it is too much.

Well you have a great build lower your power supply to a 600 since you dont really need it.
Also the case is great but you dont need to spend that much on it but it be great for air flow and itll last
But everything else is great!

While I understand the case is a bit overkill, I'm willing to spend a bit extra on it because it's what I'll be looking at most of the time, though I am still considering other options. I've found a Corsair 600W I think I'll go with based on your suggestions (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...). Is there anything else anyone thinks I should change/address before I go for it?

I will suggest getting a Seasonic M12II, it is not that the Corsair is bad quality but the Seasonic is way better. As for the case I will suggest the NZXT Phantom 410, it has great cooling, it is cheaper and it looks great. Currently $89 on Micro Center:
