New computer build looking for advice

Hi, so as the title explains, I am a new pc builder. I don't know much about building computers or making sure they are compitable but I do sure want to find out.
Here is what I have so far (nothing bought yet, will buy after I get the "greenlight". I just bought a gtx 680 Asus graphics card that was too tall for my HP Invent case (metal in HP invent case was way too low). I do not want to make another amateur mistake. Thank you in advance.
My build:
Corsair Obsidian Series 750 D Performance Full Tower Case CC-9011025ww

Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core Desktop Processor 3.5 GHZ 8 MB Cache BX80646I74770K
ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO DDR3 1600 LGA 1150 Motherboard

Corsair Vengeance 16 gb (2x8gb) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Destp Memory

WB BLue 1 TB Desktop Hard drive, 3.5 inch, 7200 RPM, Sata 6 gbs, 64 MB Cache

Corsair CX750 Builder Series ATX 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Power Supply

Asus 24x DVD-RW Serial- ATA Internal OEM Optical Drive



Graphics card, gtx 680 2gb OC (asus)
Windows8 professional system builder OE Dvd 64 bit (old Version)

Thank you very much for your thoughts, comments and support

Ps. If you know of any good first time building websites, please send them my way.
