I don't know if that PSU is No Load or Zero Load compatible. Most of Seasonics are (I believe).

Go with Arctic MX-4, over Arctic Silver 5. AS5 is out dated, and far inferior. Might also wanna check the new Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 memory, which is the brand new stuff thats color matches for Haswell mobos. Cheers and good luck with your build.

i7 is overkill, but a damn good price so why not (as long as you'll use the extra threads).
Dual 770's are way overkill for a single monitor.
Bump the SSD to 256GB
I don't trust Seagate consumer drives, 2 year warranty doesn't suggest they have much confidence either, Suggest a WD Blue or Black.
Your spending allot on your Mobo, it's a very good one BUT you don't need it, can save some here if you want to.. Sweet spot is around the $140 -180 mark for me.

Microcenter has in-store loss-lead deals on CPUs to drive other sales. Have been doing it for like the last 10 years.
