I would test it for compatibility on PCPartPicker.

 

I started to assemble the list for you but it appears the GPU may not fit in that case and the CPU you chose doesn't come with a stock cooler. Also, what PSU did you choose?

 

What are you planning to use this PC for? If you plan to game a little on it but not hardcore gaming, I think the parts are a bit overkill.

It's overkill for 1080P, but not 1440P and above, I7-5820k is a future proof CPU because it has 15MB L3 cache, 6 cores,12 threads,3.3GHz base and 3.6GHz turbo boost,140W power consumption. So yeah which is not bad, consider it little bit cheaper compare to I7-5930k or I7-5960X. Also, it is overclocked CPU, so if you adding water cooling or superior CPU cooling onto your CPU, you can get this thing running at 4GHz or 4.5GHz overclocked, if you have a lucky lottery chip though. Also, i would drop GTX 980 and get GTX 980TI because 980TI perform close to Titan X which is $1k graphic card. Most of your parts are compatible, the only thing missing is the cooling for CPU and power supply, DO NOT USE INTEL STOCK COOLER because its cheap and not worth it, consider your CPU will use around 140W compare to my which is 88W on I7-4790k. As for the motherboard, ASUS X99-A is a sweet entrance motherboard because it support overclocked CPU and GPU. As for PSU, i would go 850W or 860W other than that it a sweet gaming PC. 

 

P:S: Case are not compatible, i recommend either Corsair 450D ATX Mid Tower Case, NZXT H440 ATX Mid Tower Case, or something that have more space than your graphics card.

I game at 1280x1024 and see no problem with that. I'm surprised it's even possible to game at above 1080p.

Please google or youtube GTX 980 benchmark or review.Here is the review from youtube, 

 

 

GTX 980 CAN RUN AT 4K on possible settings on majority of games, so we basically aiming for the future while PS4 and Xbox bone 1 still ways behind.
