This is what I am looking at buying:

EVGA GTX 760

Haswell 4770k

GigaByte Z87 mobo

G. Skill Ripjaw 8gb pc312800

Seem kosher?

This is all going back in to my super huge full tower XPS case.

I might up your RAM. 8 GBs is fine by any means but if you plan to go big or go home, I'd up it to 16GB. Also, SSD I assume?

Overall sounds great, and I only have 4gb of ram, so 8gb is plenty to me.

I was going to recommend the i7, then I remembered I disabled hyper threading (due to heating problems) so I essentially have an i5.
I hear the only reason I would want it on is for video rendering anyway.

Also, what about the PSU?

I have a corsair GS600 I think, its about a year old.  I was going to get an I7, but $100 more isn't worth it, and at least this is the new socket 1150 haswell.  A small portion of my mileage/per diem for going to South Dakota is funding this, reason why I am not going overboard with ram and I-7's, sabertooth mobo's etc etc, banking the rest.

Hyperthreading is both good and bad. It depends on how the programs are coded. For gaming hyperthreading isn't important as long as most of the programs running in the background are idle. Disabling hyperthreading in that case can be beneficial, especially when talking about a CPU with multiple cores. That's why i5's in gaming perform just as good as i7's.

8 GB is fine. Most games aren't going to use more than 1 GB anyway. There is a possibility of a game using up to 4 GB though even with the ability to do so will rarely do so. Because of Windows' retardation at managing a pagefile, it may not matter much anyway. The only time I'd recommend over 8 GB of RAM is if you are using virtual machines or using RAMDisks. Otherwise it shouldn't matter.

I would recommend getting 4 sticks of RAM instead of two. With two you do get the advantage of dual channel but having 4 instead can divide the work more efficiently.

Yeah, looking back I should have bought the i5 (since I don't render a lot of videos anyway) and saved my money towards a new video card.

Shitty,

Do you have a micro center near you?  I know they have a ton of locations and they always give bundle savings when you buy a mobo and cpu.  They give you an additional 40 bucks off plus the CPU is always cheaper there.  For example that same CPU is 199.99 at the micro center and i'm not sure if that is same mobo because it ads a P to the end of GA-Z87-D3Hp and it is 124.99 there. And then throw in the 40 bucks off.  But there is tax so its around 305 total give or take a dollar where Newegg is 373.00

Dat video card.
You makin me jelly.
And those are the same exact ram sticks I have in my computer.
If you ever get an after market cpu heatsink, keep the ram sticks in mind. I had a bit of trouble fitting my heatsink in with the awkward ram design, but I think it's mainly because I have a mATX board.

That is why I did not order one just yet, waiting for everything to get in so I can see how much room is left open.

It is the same RAM I have as well except the 2 GB versions. What is dumb is that the first time I bought the model number, the clocks were better and I bought the same model number a year later and the clocks were slightly worse and of course, I had to downclock the originals. It makes me kind of wonder if G.Skill sticks are made in different places at different qualities so it can be a crapshoot. Harddrives currently are like this. Some may have better caches for example even though they are the same model depending on where they are made and you don't get to pick.
