It's good.

However (this is a preference), you might want to consider the i5 4690K devils canyon coming out in one day, it's faster and is a better overclocker. You will need a z97 motherboard.

your motherboard chipset is outdated, newer chipsets offer alot better audio and improved oc capabilities, although it does cost a little bit more http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z97gaming5 ...faster ram for a similar price http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f317000cl9d8... ....EVGA Superclocked ACX cards are better than Asus Directcu ii , this one http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-02gp42774k...
also, getting a 620w is more than you'll be needing for single card config but not enough for sli config...for a 750w unit http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-hx750 , the power supply you chose is not half-decent to run this system reliably ...also the NZXT Phantom 240 is a newer case for the same price, it offers better features and even has a window http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/146-p240-phantom-mid...


EDIT: one more thing, this thing for the monitor is 10 times better than the vS238h-P http://pcpartpicker.com/part/acer-monitor-umvh6aa003

That case says it is incompatible with the CPU cooler I have selected, do you have a suggestion for one that is compatible? Thanks. Also, I don't think this computer will ever be using SLI, can you recommend a Power supply that will be good for just the single video card. Something in the 500-550w range?

the only other power supply in the 550w range i would mention is this one http://pcpartpicker.com/part/acer-monitor-umvh6aa003 ...however for reasons beyond my comprehension this one and that 750w one cost exactly the same, even though the 750w one uses higher quality caps...so yea...also about the case incompatibility, it supports coolers upto 158mm, the hyper 212 evo is 159mm...it's only 1 mm bigger so it should fit in no problem
