Looks good. Somethings you might want to change is getting a higher quality tier PSU, that motherboard is a bit short for an ATX ( just looks a bit awkward imo) and there are cheaper one's available like the extreme 4 that are just as good, and lastly the SSD could be a lot smaller and only run some applications and the OS. The rest can be stored on the HDD.

Also, for your gtx 760, get the 02G-P4-2765-KR instead of the 3765-KR.

The latter has dual bios, which you most likely will not need.
That will cut down $20 which you can put towards the psu!

Regarding the CPU, the i5 is more than sufficient, so save some money and stick with your selection.
Regarding my CPU cooler, it is beyond awesome, and HUUUGGGEEE (but fits), but not necessary. The cooler you have is great.
