Is this a good gaming computer in terms of price to performance?

Alright, so when I started with the whole gaming computer building thing I had put together parts that were way to expensive and I probably wouldn't even have used all of that power.

So now I've revised my parts list and was wondering two things:

First of all, are all of these parts compatible? I think I've done enough looking at them to see if they all work together, but I can always have missed something.

Secondly, and what I was mainly asking in the title, is this a good computer in terms of price to performance? What I mean by that is where can I cut down on price without lowering performance by too much? I'm perfectly fine with paying any price under 1000 euros, but if I can lower it, better yet.

Here's my part list:
1. Proccessor:
2. Case:
3. Mobo:
4. CPU Fan:
5. HDD:
6. PSU:
7. RAM:
8. OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
9. GPU:
10. Optical Drive:

I'm only going to be playing on 1920 x 1080 resolution, and the games play are Skyrim, Assassin's Creed, maybe Watch Dogs since the GPU I picked out comes with a free copy, and eventually a few games from last gen as well. I'm also planning on getting a few next gen games as well, like Shadows over Mordor.
Just so you have an idea of what I'm looking for.

Does that mean that you think that for the games I play I should pay more, or that the parts are incompatible or what?
Just giving me a list of parts without telling me why it's better or worse doesn't help me much:/
Especially seeing as the list you've given me is more expensive than the one I had planned before. So could you perhaps clarify why your list is better?

Best solution

ASRock Z97 Extreme4 = 12 power phases +2 (build for last ) good vrm heatsink /SLI AND CROSSFIREX SUPPORT
Intel Core i5-4690K = new haswell devils canyon with a 100mhz increase in speed and better temperature control
MSI GeForce GTX 760 Twin Frozr GAMING 4GB = good hardware + cheap + 4gddr5 memory
Corsair CX750M 80PLUS Bronze = cheapest and best psu for low budget rig
G.Skill Sniper 8 Go (2 x 4 Go) DDR3 2400 MHz CL11 = one of the fastest ram on the market for the price and low profile
