Looks ideal to me, any higher budget id go 780ti, but that's not saying 780 isn't the beast it is, that's just about the only thing you could go better on. Which no reason you need to.

As is, things will work well.

I might buy a Z97 based motherboard instead. It will give you future upgrade options.
It also might pay to wait a week or so to see what the availability of the i7-4790K devils canyon cpu will be.

Ram is fine; I would get the low profile version.

I am not a fan of liquid cooling unless you need maximum overclocks and don't mind noise.
