Nice build, the only thing I would do is get a bigger PSU. The GTX 770 requires a min of 600w. I would go atleast 50 to 100w more just to be on the safe side.

Agree with djkillz;
also try getting ram with 2 sticks of 4gb each instead of single 8gb.
I wouldnt rely on cx series. Go with corsair gs700 psu if ur budget is limited. If you can afford more, tx, hx and rm series would be much better :)

You could fit a 780 in there if you tried :D , a dual channel kit of 8GB is ideal, but not that important (also ensures full upgrade capacity down the line if you need it)
