I am putting together a new computer and would like some advice on parts.

that's what i am thinking of at the moment, but I'm a little unsure the case and the motherboard. Can anyone think of a better case and motherboard to go with or is that build okay as is?

Why not go Haswell? Also I'd recommend a case from either: Corsair, Fractal Design or NZXT. Those guys are way ahead of the competition.

You don't need to go haswell....

Good build

I wouldn't recommend a 4770k over a 3770k if you going to overclock higher price for equal/lower performance

You might want to get a better psu though
Ha! Made you read |TJ07| i5-3570k| Asus p8z77-v| GB GTX 770 4gb sli|16gb Corsair veng| 1TB WD HDx2| 128gb Samsung ssd| XSPC Raystorm RS360 kit|

LGA 1155 socket is nearing the end of its lifetime though. 1150 will at least still support Broadwell processor in the future.

NZXT is meh in my opinion I would say corsair, FD, or cooler master case.

Edit: That case you have is perfectly great as well

The 780ti is a beast, no doubt. But good god I couldn't spend 700 on a single card. I would go AMD, better bang for your buck. The 290x perhaps.

Pretty much don't listen to anyone about a case ever unless they're talking purely functional. Different cases do have different things etc. My point is, go here http://www.newegg.com/Computer-Cases/Category/ID-9 and find a case that speaks to you
