Awesome build for overclocking and gaming.
Few notes: make sure your RAM is 1.5V and That PSU is overkill, 650W is max what you may need.

I'm planing on doing CrossFire in the future when my 7950 starts to struggle, that's why I want a 750w power supply :p 
Thanks for your opinion <3

Don't forget a good CPU cooler. Looks great otherwise. Enjoy!

To be honest I don't think I will be overclocking my CPU, a friend told if so then I should get the non K version of it.
But it's only 7$ difference here lol, so I guess I will be fine with the stock cooler, right ?

Stock coolers are noisier and not so effective. I always include a proper cooler in all builds. Sure you can live with it but I'd go and buy a proper one.

It's not 7$ only it's more because if you change cpu to non 'k', you also change mobo

The sad part that were I live I don't have wide options like this, and here we have a 40% tax on all stuff shipped from outside so everything is very expensive, so If I buy it from amazon and other site it will cost me the same or a lil bit more with this 40% tax :(  btw the price for the build I listed is 1400$ here , I know If I lived in the US I would be getting it for faar more less
