This is my build atm. I was wondering if the case was big enough tho.. really like it,sleek and all and it "looks" big enough for everything without heating problems.(also I realise I only have 1 SSD as storage and from my personal experience on how much I download games, etc.. I deem having only 1 suffecient for my needs and also the 16gig ram is just incase some future games start using more ram.)

As for OC'ing I will start doing some minor oc if the pc starts to go sluggish (might re-think on MOBO choice) #Any suggestions are welcome.

If you're mainly gaming, then 16 GB of RAM would be too much, 8GB would be good enough

Your MOBO is good but if you did want to go cheaper then look at the ASUS Z87-Pro or the AsRock Z87 Extreme6, both are good for OCing. Also i agree with the IRONBATMAN but if its in your budget then it saves you the hassle of doing it later.

Looks really good. Just to clear the 8gb ram thing, if this is only for gaming then 8gb ram is PLENTY. Xbox 1 and ps4 have 8gb, which is mainly taken up by the os. These consoles will last for awhile and since games are ported from consoles, it means that there is no way any game will use more than 8gb ram. And by the time there will be ddr4 ram, so it is pointless to get 8gb :) 

I personally use 4gb of ram and i have zero issues and never hit 4gb usage.
