Hi guys!

Is this build worth the 1500$ price tag?
I want to play 2014-15 games with this build on the highest settings with a good fps on a 1080p monitor.
If you have some advice please say so!
I don't want to change my GPU, or my case.
The PSU is expensive because its silent, I like a silent pc because it will be sitting
about 20inch or so from my head.

Crucial 8 GB DDR3-1600 Kit (64$)
be quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 750W, 750 Watt (180$)
Cooler Master Hyper212 Evo (33$)
MSI GTX 780Ti Gaming 3G GPU (630$)
MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming motherboard (170$)
LG GH24NS, DVD-burner (15$)
Seagate Barracuda 7200 2 TB HDD(79$)
Corsair Vengeance C70 case (120$)
i5-4670K (210$)

Thanks guys!

Yes it is worth it and that is a very good gaming computer. The only thing that I would add is a SSD for the OS , but that's just an option if you wanted to go that way.

The build is fine, except I think you are going to be disappointment in your PSU considering its price. I realize "silent" is somewhat subjective, but I can't imagine any scenario in which 43db is considered silent. If you want a silent PSU for that system, look at something like s seasonic x 1050

The db on my PSU is currently between 12 db and 22db.
My fan is between 9 and 31db.

Is that loud?.
Will I notice it since it is close to my head?

It isn't loud but it sure isn't silent. If you can hear it, it isn't silent. Now if you just want a quiet PSU sure it will be fine but you said you wanted silent. That is why I suggested the PSU I suggested; the fan doesn't even turn on until your power load exceeds 500 watts. That would actually be silent.
