You'd be better off buying a 780ti over a Titan for gaming

1. Wait a week. We should see a i7-4790K devil's canyon cpu.

2. Build using a Z97 based motherboard. That preserves your options for a broadwell upgrade.

3. The titan black is very good,but performance is no better than a GTX780ti. You are paying a high premium for an extra 3gb of vram. Vram is overhyped as a performance booster. read this:http://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Video-Card-Pe...

4. A build with your budget deserves a SSD for the "C" drive. 240gb at least.

5. Coolermaster quality is iffy.
Check this list:

6. A "K" cpu should have a cooler. I would avoid liquid coolers in favor of a good air cooler from noctua or Phanteks.

2. Sabretooth z97 looks to be good.
3. I like EVGA cards, particularly the direct exhaust blower units which are better for sli.
Here is a very good one:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
4. Intel 520 is ok, but an older model.
My preference, in order for 240gb would be
Samsung 840 pro
Samsung evo
Intel 730
Intel 530
5. You can't beat Seasonic X for quality
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Another good option is the S12II version for less
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

On the monitor, 1080P is getting old.
I would look at a 1440P unit.
Here is an inexpensive one:

I recently saw this Samsung UD590 4k monitor which deserves some consideration if it fits your budget:

16gb 2400 ddr3 ram in a 2 x 8gb kit is about right.

Corsair is good, I have also used g.skil, Kingston, patriot without problem.
Tall heat spreaders are not necessary, and I would avoid them.
They are mostly marketing and can impact some coolers. Best to pick low profile versions.

Monitors are hard.
I change mine rarely, and everyone has different likes.

If you play fast action games and shooters, then fast refresh rates and g.sync are porbably good.
I play more sedate games like civ 4/5 which are capped at 60fps. many games are.
If you use v.sync, then there is no tearing and the refresh rate is plenty.

If you can, see some different monitors personally. I like larger 2560 x 1600 ips monitors.
If you want to see something really stunning, look at a 4k monitor. They are starting to appear at reasonable prices with 60hz refresh rates. You can get the Samsung UD590 shipped directly from Korea for $600.
They are new, and there may be some issues so read the reviews on amazon and newegg to learn more.

Best solution

I have been reading up on 4k monitors.
All will do 60hz with displayport. and are 28".
For a shooter, the UD590 seems good.
Upcoming is the Asus PB287Q which looks like the same panel at a cheaper price with vesa mount.

Recently announced is the Acer XB280HK that includes g.sync.
It is due 2Q I would wait for that for the very best.
