Yes it will work. I would make a few recommendations though. If you are going to use the system only for gaming, then 16GB is overkill. 8GB are more than enough (you can upgrade later if you need, although by the time you upgrade your RAM you will be looking for DDR4). Also If you are not going to overclock then the K version is pointless. This applies for the liquid cooling system. Finally, get this HDD (it offers almost the same specs as the WD black and in some cases it outruns it in performance. More importantly it is half price!)

Thanks for the input I really appreciate it. So you think 16gb is overkill? I mean I was going to use it for gaming mainly but I'll be doing the regular things as well like word and programs like that since I'm in school but I'm not doing video editing or things like that. Also forgive my newbieness but I don't want to use monitor I wan to use my 60" 1080p tv do you think I'll be able to play ges like BF4, Titanfall, CIv.5, Arma 3, and The Division on the tv. If not what would I need to do?

Yes. Resolution is the most important not screen size. Your 770 will be able to handle it :)

Hell yeah :)  . One final question bro, my wifi doesn't come with Bluetooth capabilities so I was wondering if there's a Bluetooth card or USB adapter that you would recommend. Also a mouse and a keyboard for gaming?
I know I ask a lot but I would really appreciate if you could enlighten me a bit.

You can check on ebay for a bluetooth usb there are thousands of them. How much are you willing to pay for a mouse and keyboard?

Well right now I just want something to work with since I just spend a lot of money on buying all the other parts today. So something not to expensive would be nice but in a month or so I would like to buy something I can keep for a long time so I wouldn't mind 150 to to 300 as long as it will last me quite a bit of time. I pretty don't want something I have to keep upgrading
