First Time Build A Gaming PC

Hey, I've been wanting to build a gaming pc for a while and ive been researching a bit about parts. I was just wondering what other peoples opinions were on this build

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4GHz Quad-Core

Motherboard: MSI Z87-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1150

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600

SSD: Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" SSD

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM

Graphics Card: MSI GeForce GTX 760 2GB

Case: Cooler Master Storm Enforcer ATX Mid Tower

Power Supply: EVGA 650W ATX12V / EPS12V

Can you please tell me if theres anything im missing or any incompatibilities. I'm looking to spend no more than Australian $1700 (1000 pounds).

I would suggest you downgrade the CPU to a Core i5 4670K, which you can then overclock, as i7 is generally considered to offer little or no advantage for gaming over i5. Spend what you save on a better graphics card, perhaps a GTX 770, for a better overall result.

Okay thanks for the feedback MechKB do you think i should get a smaller/bigger case? or perhaps buy a CPU cooler?
