  1. All good parts , you have made very good choices. The only recommendation I would make is to get the GTX 780Ti if it's within your budget to do so. If not the 780 will be fine.
  2. Best answer

    CX750W PSU is low end PSU, I would suggest you stronger XFX PSU which made by Seasonic
    If you want under 1000 pounds you can drop cooler to make build cheaper!

    GTX-780 will perform well on 1080p but if you want higher resolution you can get 780ti but for 1080p 780ti is not worth the money (IMO)

    Exactly. The 780Ti would be a waste of money; if you're going to spend money on one you might as well wait until the 790 or the 8xx series come out.
