I've already ordered the case, CPU, and PSU. Only thing I'm kinda on the fence about is the motherboard. I also already have a Hyper 212 Evo that I'm gonna use, and I may upgrade that later if I can't push the processor as hard as I want.

Another motherboard to look into. I have the 1155 socket version and I'm very happy with it.

Good build, also you won't push crap with that heatsink. If you really want to push the 4770k you need at least this:

also in my honest opinion, I would go for an 7970 instead of the 770.

I really don't like those brown/tan Noctua fans. I mean I don't try that hard to color coordinate my build, but those fans always look so ugly and out of place. I'd probably just put them in the front where they can't be seen and use other fans on the heatsink.

Why do you recommend the 7970?

You can get them as low as 279.99 so the price to performance ratio is really good while the 770 isn't much better for a 100 dollar+ increase in price.

Any SLI setups that would be more cost efficient that a single 770?

If you have the extra money, the 250 GB 840 EVO significantly outperforms the 120 GB on both read and write.

Yeah I was actually checking that out, I'll probably do that. I might just forgo the 2TB RAID setup and just get a single 3TB drive, but I'm not quite sure.
