How does this PC gaming build sound?

I would like to run games like Skyrim and Watchdogs at great settings with at least 45 or so FPS. This is my first PC build, so feel free to offer extra advice need be. Here are the parts I'm thinking about using.

-Video Card: EVGA 02G-P4-3765-KR GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Dual Superclocked w/ EVGA ACX Cooler

-CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K Quad-Core Desktop Processor 3.4 GHZ 6 MB Cache

-Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Hero ATX LGA1150

-Hard Drive: SAMSUNG Spinpoint M8 1TB 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook

-SSD: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive

-Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC

-CPU Fan: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Let me know what you think and if these parts are compatible. Also, any good case ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

P.S. If suggesting new parts, try to keep everything below about $1,000. My summer job pays minimum wage and it took me the whole summer to save up the $1,000 I already have. Thanks.

    Everything looks good except for the power supply, you want to be able to upgrade eventually, and that barely covers what you have. Since you are getting the 4670k, you probably plan on overclocking eventually, and that draws more power. I would get at least a 500 watt, if not more. Also, don't forget to add RAM, at least 8 GB, preferably 1800 mhz. You could get a Western Digital HD for the same price, and have a faster speed on it than the 5400 RPM.
