Is Everything Looking Good Here For a First PC Build?

So I am a bit of a newbie when it comes to PC building here so I want to just double check everything is compatible and if there's anything extra I should be doing.

I have set aside £1600 for this build as I am planning to go in at a high level :p 

Major Components:
CPU: Intel i7 4770k @ 3.7GHz
GPU: 4GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 770
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z87X-SLI (I've checked socket size etc for this)
RAM: 16GB DDR3 RAM @ 1600MHz
HDD/SSD: 2TB WD Caviar Black & 120GB Kingston V300 SSD
PSU: 750W Corsair 80+ Certified

I'm hoping that this is a good setup for my money but I would just like to know what you guys think. I don't plan to use more than 1 screen for a while but again, would the 770 handle 2 or 3 screens.

In terms of cooling I have a CoolerMaster Seidon 120M Fan heatsink but if I planned to OC my CPU would I need watercooling?

I think this is everything, if you need more detail on the build then I'll let you know.
Thanks:)

You dont *need* water cooling, but it is more efficient, and costs more.

Fair enough, I just don't want an expensive problem if I were to OC it.
