How is this for a overclocking/fast workstation/sometime gaming build?

The title pretty much says it all. After rebates and selling the in-app purchases that come with the gpu on ebay, price should be about $800. Any ways to make it cheaper? And also, back to the title, how is the build overall for a fast, overclockable workstation with occasional gaming?
Thank you.

    My recommendation remains the same unless you are willing to get a better video card instead of that GTX750ti, and in that case,
