I have a few questions on a new build ($1000)

This is what i'm planing on building. Is anything to much? Should i swap something out? I was trying to stay Under $1000 but am willing to go a bit over if necessary.
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor $234.99 Amazon
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO $31.99 Amazon
Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Extreme3 ATX LGA1150 $110.91 Newegg
Memory: AMD 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $89.99 Newegg
SSD: Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $57.99 Newegg
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $58.00 Amazon
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760 2GB WINDFORCE Video Card $229.00 Amazon
Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (White) ATX Mid Tower Case $89.99 Amazon
PS: EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified $99.99 Amazon
OD: LG GH24NS95 DVD/CD Writer $21.12 Amazon
OS: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM) (64-bit) $102.98 Newegg

It all totals to about $1150.
I made a few changes from what i originally had (i'm still new at this). I mainly need for gaming and some computer classes.

I know i have a high PS, but I was thinking about buying another GPU later, but was wondering if there was a better card? or if i should even do that at all?
