I really like the build in general. The only change I would make would be to get you a better graphics card. For today's games like BF4 or Watchdogs, you would not be able to sustain a consistent 60FPS on ultra settings. You would need to turn some eye candy off. No big deal, but if you have the funds, look for at least a gtx 770.

I would even go so far as to say drop the SSD in order to get the better graphics card. SSDs decrease load times considerably, but they have no affect on FPS in games. They are a luxury item for a gaming machine, and I'd say a better graphics card is the priority. See what some others say.
