Almost ready, just looking for some last minute part compatibility advice before I purchase.

To reiterate, I am using this for moderate to heavy gaming on a 2560x1440 monitor. I will go SLI sometime soon when I can purchase another 780.

Is the RAM Voltage of 1.65v going to be a problem for the Haswell's recommended max of 1.575v?

I appreciate any and all feedback.

Should all be fine, the voltage will be ok, but remember that overvoltage shortens the life of the electronics, expect some amount of stability issues some years later, it will get worse over time, but with what you seem to have as a budget, not a problem to have to replace it by the time it does.

If its only for gaming, then you don't need DRAM that fast, nor as much, 8gb is fine as is 1600MHz. You could also save by switching to an i5-4670k, but that would probably hurt future-proofing, otherwise, an i5-4670k is more than any modern game is going to use. All in all a good system.
