$1500 Gaming Build: Good to Go?

Hello,

I've saved up and created this build, was wondering if everything would fit into my mid-tower case(like the h100i)? Also, if everything looks good to go. Anyways here is the build:

It is $1500 excluding the monitor and keyboard.

Other Questions:
Motherboards: MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming vs Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H vs MSI Z87-G45 Gaming??? Can't decide between these 3 motherboards.

    Do this. It sacrifices the i7 for an i5 and the h100i for a hyper 212 evo, which does not affect gameplay performance whatsoever. It replaces these with dual 760s, which outperforms any single 770 by quite a margin. Doing this improves gameplay performance significantly.

    If you really wan't the i7, you can put it in there, although this would cause you to go 40$ over budget.

    Quick question, this build. Would it still be good in like 5/6 months?
  3. Absolutely. It will be good for 1-2 years at least and after that it's easy to upgrade.

    Thanks for your input, it helped, I appreciate it and will put it into my build. :D! I need to use i7 as I am a heavy video editor, YouTuber, and soon-to-be livestreamer.
