My budget is ~$1,500-$1,900 including peripherals (mouse, keyboard, monitor). I may be running SLI in the future. I was wondering, should I upgrade the i5-4670k to an i7-4770k? Will this build be powerful enough to run most games at ultra settings, 1920x1080 (single monitor), and at least 60fps? Are there any incompatibilities with any of the parts listed? Should I change any of the parts listed (keep in mind I am trying to keep a simple look and a blue color scheme for this build)? Does everything fit in my case? Any advice and/or suggestions are welcome.
(P.S. If this makes any difference, I don't have the money for this build yet, I still have to save up. Also, I have already picked out the peripherals, but I will take suggestions.)

An i5-4570K with a small overclock will outperform every single i7 on the market in terms of gaming. There's no need to spend over $300 on a processor for gaming.
with SLI in mind, you might want a 750 or 800 psu to be safe. Get a modular one as well to keep the inside of the case clean.
Other than that, everything looks good.
