Hi guys. I'm planning to buy a new computer and I've decided on the parts above. Was just wondering if you guys have any suggestions. Oh and if i intend to add another gtx 770 (meaning 2x gtx 770), will my current PSU be enough to support the system? Thanks guys!

A Core i5-4670K with a $150 or so Z87 board will give you more bang for the buck

Drop this down to 8GB, unless you plan on doing heavy Photoshopping.

You can drop this down to 600W-650W. I'd recommend something from Seasonic or Corsair.

Cooling Corsair H100I
Unless you plan on heavy overclocking, get a Cooler Master Evo 212 instead.

Is that sufficient for GTX 770 SLI, if he were to go that route later?

Well, considering one of my systems that had a i5-2500 with two GTX 560 Ti's ate about 330W at most, I see this setup floating at 400W-450W at worst.

And when I say "at most" or "at worst", I only say this to playing a game or something. I'm don't count running say Prime95 with Furmark because both are meant to deliberately max out the CPU and GPU which is a scenario that I've seen not happen.
