I think the build looks OK, but I do agree with the SSD and I would go for the AX or HX 750 (760 is the newer model if that matters to you.) instead of the one you chose. It will cost more but you'll be glad you did. Unless I am mistaken, the B85 boards are not overclockable so no need to pay more for a K series CPU. Either get a Z97 board and a K series chip or stick with the B85 and get a non K CPU.

Hitmanzoor,
Welcome to SF. Tell us what case you'll be using and do you plan to overclock or do you want a better cooling solution then the stock intel?
I'm also a bit underwhelmed with the mobo so tells if you have a mobo size and price limit in mind.

I'd skip the 700 series now that the GTX 980's and 970's are out. Also, like essenbe said, get a Z97 motherboard if you plan on overclocking a K series CPU. Oh, and yeah......an SSD is a must have anymore.

I would stay away from the 760s; I've seen a lot of reports of the Corsair Link hardware and software on the 760s being temperamental at best. I would also recommend the AX over the HX because it is fully modular (all the cables can be disconnected at the PSU) which will make replacing the PSU much easier than if one has to replace it at a later date. The Corsair AX750 is an excellent PSU (it's the one I chose for my new case) and has a seven year warranty (just make sure you don't remove any of the labels to avoid voiding the warranty). The PSU is one of the most important components in a computer. A cheap one is far more likely to fail and destroy your MOBO, CPU, HDDs, etc. in the process.
