Thanks! epic build! but do you think i5-4760k is a better option with a 4th generation motherboard?and only the Zotac version of 760 is available in my country(is that good?). how long do you think this build will hold up for?

Yes, Zotac is ok. It can hold up as long as you want it to be. :)  i5 4670k is good enough for your requirement under this budget. You'll not be disappointed.

hey! i found the Asus version of GTX 760! but problem is, here its $339(if you re-convert my currency into US dollars)and the Zotac version( not the AMP version) is $325 and the MSI version is $330 and Galaxy version is also $339. now since there's just like 10-15 dollars difference between them i wouldn't mind anything from this, and i'll change my budget,but here, the processor, motherboard and Graphic card is my main concern!.and just one more question, ASUS version cards only work on ASUS/Gigabyte/ASRock motherboards or do they work on intel motherboards too?

Asus graphics card can run in Intel mobo as well. No issue there. MSI, ASUS, ZOTAC, all are good brands. If difference in price is not much of a concern then stick with Asus otherwise choose cheaper card. No issue there as well.
