It seems awesome, I'm just concerned about the CPU. Since it is to do a lot of 3d modeling and rendering shouldn't it be at least an i7. Forget about the OS, case and peripherals.
Thank you for your quick reply

Did another take, changed CPU, MB, RAM and cooler.

Although, you can't really get the best of both worlds with a $1500 budget. So it's going to be a gaming pc that can cover some heavy processing, but it will never be as good as for example a Xeon + Quadro / FirePro setup at rendering. A build like that wouldn't game particularly well because of the fundamental differences between a workstation card and a gaming card. But it would excel at rendering.

The proposed build is a take with components which are popular with good ratings, excellent at gaming and aimed at overclocking, how high the 4770k will go in regards to clocks is somewhat dependent on temperature - if I remember correctly.

I had a crack at it too ... quite close to Agoriaz's builds frankly, just a few changes here and there; faster RAM, smaller SSD to increase the storage (need a programs/storage drive if you're doing professional work) and Haswell-refresh CPU for the better thermal performance thus overclocking, plus a "fatter" AIO CPU cooler.

For another $50 or so you can double the SSD ... over-budget, but probably worth it frankly.

Thank you so much for your help guys, i will go for a more gaming pc since the work to be done for game making is just modeling basicly and rendering very little.
Thank you so much for your awsome help
