  1. If you want to overclock, you'll need a Z87 motherboard. I'll make a revised build. Also, I think you should get a 60hz monitor and put more money into the GPU

  4. Good build and good choice of components. But here are three things I would change about it:

    - Look at 840 EVO SSD from Samsung. They may be cheaper and faster than Seagate 600.

    - For the PSU, I woudn't go with a Rosewill PSU, unless your budget is too tight. Choose one from a widely trusted brand in power supplies such as Seasonic and XFX. Anything from these two brands will perform way better.

    - As lucasz already said, you'll need a Z87 board in order to do overclocking.

    Have fun building !
