  1. There is nothing wrong with the build at all and all of the parts will work together. There is a question though , do you have a budget ? The only reason that I ask is because the motherboard is on the expensive side and you can get something a little cheaper that will work just as well.

    ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

    It does have the second Pci-e slot for the option of adding the second video card and it saves you $50 and if you get a less expensive case , $140 is a lot for a case , you can actualy bump up the cpu to a 3770K.
