Hi! I'm new here at tomshardware... Sorry if my language isn't correct, I'm not English.
I've never built a PC, just bought an assembled... But now I'm thinking about a new PC, to play with games such as Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, and some FPS games, online too, with a resolution of 1920*1080 and a framerate of 50-60 FPS, with high details and 2x or 4x MSAA for 2 years. The PC I'm looking for must allow me to play with very good details also in the future with new games of the Next Generation, too. Ah, yes, I would also capture some gameplays, even with medium details.

My valute is Euro, I have a budget of about 800-850 € . I have an idea:

CPU: Intel i5 4670K
CPU Cooler: Cooler master TPC 800 or Cooler Master Seidon 120v
Motherboard: Asus Z87-A
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x4 Gb DDR3 @1866 MHz (Here I have another question, do they work with the i5? On the Intel site it's written it supports DDR3 1333-1600)
Graphic Card: Asus GTX 760 DirectCU II
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1Tb or Western digital Caviar Blue 1Tb (both at 7200 rpm)
Power Supply: Cooler Master GX750
Case: Cooler Master CM 690 III

Do this PC support my requests, maybe with a bit of overclock? Or should I get a GTX 770 instead? And if I get a 770, will it be performing with the i5 4670k?
I want to clarify that I don't like ATI GPUs.
Thanks to everyone will answer me :)

Welcome to Tomshardware :) 

I will recommend the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO for your i5, as it is enough to cool it with overclocking headroom. It also is half the price of the seidon 120v. I will also recommend the Wester Digital Blue if you aren't going to need high-performance computing, as the Blue is cheaper but only a bit slower than the black. However, I will highly recommend changing your PSU to a more reliable brand eg. Corsair TX series, XFX, Antec, Seasonic as I had the same PSU and it broke and destroyed the rest of my computer. There are many negative reviews so I will recommend changing it. Yes, the computer will support up to moderate overclocking. Your GTX 760 will overclock perfectly fine. The i5-4670k works with any of the GTX 760-770 cards.

Thanks :)  as regards PSU, can I take a 650w or I need more power?
For the HDD, I prefer the Black, it's just a bit more expensive...I need velocity

650 watts is sufficient.
