Hey, is this just for gaming? If so, you can drop the i7 and 16gb of ram to an i5 and 8gb, and you won't notice the change in performance. You could put the money you saved into a(nother) monitor.

I dunno about the CPU as I have a 3770K but I just wanted to tell you that the 780SC is just an unbelievable card performance wise, not only is it really fast but it runs cold, I am in NZ, and the card Idles at 24-30 degrees and peaks highest in crysis 3 at 61-64 degrees.
From what I understand the 4770K still suffers from poor thermal grease inbetween the IHS and processor core causing high temps when clocked up , it really is a shame they didnt fix that. I hear many people are de-lidding their haswell chips even though that obviously voids warranty.
