I want to build my own computer. I want it to be able to play the newest games on ultra graphics settings with 4K graphics.
Is this build good enough:

My brother said that this build couldn't play newer games on high graphics settings because games are graphics intensive now.

Not sure what you are going for, but you are over-paying by several thousand and including over-priced components for little or no gain in performance. You can build a comparable system for a lot less.

I'm trying to build an ultra gaming pc that can play games on ultra graphics settings with no lag while using game recording software and skyping my friends all at the same time. Also I need many tabs open at once.
I also do so,e game creation with Unity.
What would you reccommend changing?

an i7 4790k will be just fine, more than fine for gaming, and a R9 295 x2 performs better in games than a Titan Z, so for the price of a Titan Z you could get 2 R9 295 x2's and run any game ultra at 4k. here, lemme build one real quick, post in a bit.

You can spend a hell of a lot less with an i7-4930k CPU, 32 GB of RAM, three GTX 780 6 GB GPUs in 3-way SLI, and a much smaller SSD. That build is overkill and uber expensive unless you plan to render full-length movies in 4K 3D.

ok, i threw in the i7 4930K because of its 6 cores, and a 2011 mobo will be best for this build. only 32G of RAM, but that is plenty upon plenty for gaming. A 256gb ssd, you can get larger if you want, a 2tb hdd, again, bigger if you want, i got 2 R9 295 x2's, as this is the FASTEST POSSIBLE way to run a 4K monitor right now. that case supports just about everything you would need, that psu is very high quality and can deliver enough power, and the cpu cooler i got is a great cooler, you shouldnt need better unless overclocking the cpu like nuts, which you shouldnt need if you are just gaming.
