OMG SOMEONE STOP HIM PLEASE!!!
I don't fully understand how you got this to cost this much with only a GTX 760, but give me a second and I shall get you something better for the money.

Right now there is a sale on the HD 7950

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127737

$209.99 - $30 MIR - 10% off using VME10BTS and checking out with V.me = $159.99 per HD7950 with 3 free games per card

That'll be $320 for 2 HD7950s and 6 free games.

EDIT: nvm just read that you are ordering from canada.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Ok here we go.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1tUXY

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($279.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($94.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: Asus Z87-PRO ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($172.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Memory: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory ($69.98 @ Outlet PC)
Storage: Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($122.99 @ NCIX US)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.98 @ Outlet PC)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB Video Card ($349.99 @ Newegg)
Wireless Network Adapter: TP-Link TL-WDN4800 802.11a/b/g/n PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter ($36.99 @ NCIX US)
Case: BitFenix BitFenix Ronin ATX Full Tower Case ($74.99 @ NCIX US)
Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 750W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($119.99 @ Amazon)
Optical Drive: LG GH24NS95 DVD/CD Writer ($14.99 @ Newegg)
Monitor: Asus VG278HE 144Hz 27.0" Monitor ($374.99 @ NCIX US)
Total: $1772.86

Basically I changed just about everything (lol)
Went up to the 4770k, and upgraded the cooler to the Corsair H100i, I dont think those need explaining.
The Asus Z87-Pro is such a high quality board for the money and has so many more features over the Gigabyte that its worth saving the $40 for it.
You don't need more then 8GB of ram unless you're doing stuff in Adobe or CAD. 8GB will be more then enough.
I upgraded the GPU to the HD 7970 as its the best card for your money. Rocks the socks off the 760 you wanted.
Changed the case because this one is just as nice, and has full support for 240mm rad, even has nice cable management stuff to keep everything looking neat.
The PSU you picked was so overpriced I'm surprised they didn't give you a free reach-around with it. This Rosewill Capstone will be perfect.
The optical drive I picked for you has the same read/write as the Asus you picked, its just cheaper.
Damnit just realized your in Canada like me. One second.

*EDIT*
Ok so pretty much the same thing, just $11 over budget.
