Nice build, but I was wondering why you didn't go with the unlocked version of the 4770K? As well as why don't you use the fans that come with the case? Okay one more thing is that I would recommend a 770 not a 760 it is a significantly better video card.

I haven't bought anything except the case so can you send me some links to something I should look at?

Sure.

Unlocked CPU- Intel Core i7-4770K - Newegg.com
Better GPU- Newegg.com - EVGA SuperClocked w/ ACX Cooling 02G-P4-2774-KR GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

Let me link you a nice power supply.

CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready - Newegg.com

Like I said you should just use the fans that come with your case instead of buying ones. Another question, do you want to add a ssd or do you not want one?

Also I don't really have a budget soo I'll get anything to make it a beast of a computer.

About the power supply, you won't have trouble keeping rack of the extra cables if you just put them in the box that they came in, not to mention when you're spending this much on a PC it will look much nicer if its modular. A ssd will greatly increase bootup speed, opening programs, game loading screens, etc. Defiantly worth the money.

I have some more questions for you as well. Will you be overclocking your CPU at all, if you are then I would get a aftermarket CPU cooler. In fact I would get one even with out overclocking, it would be much better at keeping your CPU cool as well as much less noisy. Let me link you a really nice cheap CPU cooler.

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/FM2/AM3+ - Newegg.com

That is absolutely the best CPU cooler for the price. No debate there

There is a air director on the fan, on the side panel will that get in the way of the CPU cooler?

I don't think so, but if it does you could remove it.
