My first real PC build

I am about to endeavor on my first pc build. I am mildly obsessed with having great components in everything I do and I'm trying to build a pc for about $1100 dollars. I am building for gaming and just to have a badass computer. 

 

The plan is

 

Intel i7 6700k $495

 

Asus ROG Maximus viii Hero $235

 

Corsair Vengence LPX 16gb 2400MHz ddr4 $95

 

EVGA SuperNOVA 750w $90

 

Noctua NH-U14S  $70

 

Samsung 850 evo 250gb ssd $80

 

Windows 10 $120

 

I already have a case and GPU

 

Fractal Design Define S

 

Radeon R9 290

 

 

Would all this work together? My plan is to upgrade storage, GPU, and maybe Ram when I can, as well as eventually add water cooling hence the Define S.

I fell like you could go with an i5 skylake instead of the i7 with your GPU. Other than that it all looks good!

The reference models are hot/loud. The op has an MSI R9 290 Twin Frozr which is fine.
