Ok after a few more days of research this is what i've finally settled on. Any last second input?

In your first build you have 2 gtx 780s but in this one you only have 1. Not sure if you meant to do that or not but that's one thing I noticed. Also the only thing you could change is if you wanted to wait for the new Intel CPUs coming out you'd need to get a different motherboard. If you don't want to then that build is good.

Yea decided to just go with 1 video card for now since i'll be using a single 144hz 1080p monitor, and from what I understand 2 780 gtx's in sli would be overkill. Definitely leaving the option open to upgrade later down the line. About the new processors, from what I understand the 4770k's are more suited to gaming (plan to do some recording and live streaming as well), while the new cores coming out are more suited for video editing, graphic design, things of that sort. Please point me to some resources saying otherwise if this isn't true.

Take note, since you plan to use noctua d14 as cooler you might want to double check that your corsair ram does not have those tall heat sinks. From the picture on that link it looks like it is. Pick a low profile ram otherwise you cpu cooler will not fit.
Only two console brands on the market: Nintendo and Xboxstation. There used to be three, but sadly the PlayStation identity died with the PS2.

Corsair Vengeance Pro does indeed have a low heat sink. It's compatible with the cooler.

If you're going to stick with an LGA2011 build and 16 GB of RAM, you should get 4 x 4 GB, not 2 x 8 GB, in order to leverage quad channel mode. I know you changed your build to LGA1150, but at least you'll know for future reference.

Last question. Do I need a capture card with this setup? If so can someone please recommend me one? Thanks in advance.
