Hello Everyone!
I am a first time builder and I have decided on the parts for a high end gaming computer that I will build soon. I am about to finalise my parts list but I need to know if all my parts are compatible. I would really appreciate if anyone could:
a) Check the compatibility of my parts
b) Tell me if I have made any mistakes in my parts choice (e.g Unreliable Device etc.)
c) Tell me if I can get the parts cheaper somewhere else (I have checked this and do not believe I can, but I was wondering if anyone knew some good sites)

Please note I live in the UK and so cannot rely on US companies like Newegg for parts.

My Specs are as follows:
CPU: Intel Core i7 4770K Quad Core Retail CPU (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00CO8TBQ0/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC...)
Graphics Card: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX780 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00CYIQ00K/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC...)
Motherboard: ASRock Z87 EXTREME4
(http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00CZXYH8G/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC...)
OS: Windows 8.1 (64 Bit)
Case: Thermaltake Urban S31
Power Supply: Corsair CXM 750W (Modular)
Memory: Corsair CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R Vengeance Pro Series 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1866Mhz CL9 XMP Performance Desktop Memory Kit Red
(http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00D5X8XT4/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd...)
Fan: Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo
Storage Device 1: Seagate Barracuda 3.5 inch 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB 6GB/S Internal SATA Drive
Storage Device 2: Crucial CT240M500SSD1 2.5-inch 240GB M500 SATA 6Gb/s Internal Solid State Drive
Keyboard: Corsair CH-900004-UK Vengeance K60 Performance FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Monitor (I am going with Duel Monitor): BenQ GL2450HM 24 inch Widescreen LED Multimedia Monitor
Optical Drive: LiteOn IHAS124-04 24x SATA Half Height Internal DVDRW Drive - Black


All other parts I have left out I either already have or do not feel necessary to include.

Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read and/or reply!

a. All compatible.

b. 8GB of RAM is sufficient for gaming if you want to save some money. Also, that PSU is bad, get something from Seasonic or XFX. Corsair also makes great PSUs, just stay away from the CX(M), VS and RM series PSUs.

c. Use this to find the cheapest prices available for your products: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/

Thanks! Are any of those PSUs modular?

This one is: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1750bbef...

It's made by Seasonic (= one of the best), it's fully modular and its efficiency rating is 80+ Gold.
