Please help me improve it and if I missed by far I'd be thankfull if you told me what's wrong. Thank you for your time .

First thing's first, the core of your PC is your PSU. You don't want to buy junk and toss expensive parts on it. You will want to buy a Seasonic or Corsair PSU or IF you can find one a Super Flower (since they sell those over there).
Never sacrifice PSU quality for other parts. Ever.

Choice for CPU and GPUs are good, but you for sure don't want to put SLI on that PSU. A solid 750w quality unit will do fine.

On that the motherboard you chose does not support SLI. You will need to get yourself a Z97 board. I would get this.
ASRock Z97 Extreme4 - Best Compatible ASRock Z97 Extreme4 Mobo

Next up I don't recommend getting the OCZ SSD. Stick to Samsung or Crucial. An 850EVO would be perfect.

If you need to replenish cash for quality parts then stick to 8GB of 1600MHz RAM. Don't need 16 for a gaming rig.

If you want to learn anymore read my article.

Three things I would look into changing, the ssd, the ram, the psu for sure.
Also you may as well start out with a aftermarket cooler.

http://www.amazon.com/Western-Digita...+digital+500gb

Use it for your primary drive for windows also more cache and rpm speeed better work time for you in the long run.

http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Builde...3&keywords=psu
Even though I don't like corsair psu's personally this would benefit you.
Plus 600watts should be plenty for your system.

For the ram use crucial for your intel system it'll be the sweet spot while gaming.
http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-Ballis...ds=crucial+ram

This would be best for your cpu, especially if you apply arctic mx-4.
If you buy it make sure to view a video tutorial on youtube or read the guides online provided by other users.

Amazon.com: Zalman Computer Noise Prevention System with Silent Fan Pure Copper Heatsink CPU Cooler CNPS9500AT: Electronics


So yeah look into these, also your build looks good especially for a 750 intel rig.
Lately I hear other guys online or on the street rambling on about their builds being 900-2000 dollars.

+1 to PP's suggestions.

The PSU should be the first thing swapped out, same with the OCZ (they didn't have that great of a track record and Crucial or Samsung have better quality for a pretty cheap price still).

Thank you for all your help. I think I fixed the PC build. I hope I got it right now.

Not quite, look at your first build spec and now the second one.
Seing as the GTX970 is abit too much for you, you could do better than the GTX660.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=sr_nr_...nid=1632651031

You could get a GTX750ti for under 150 pounds also check with some sellers and see if they will ship it to you.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...#xtor=EPR-8886

Also be to read this, even though I don't do ssd's, if I had to buy one right now I would go with sandisk.

Not sure of the price of a 660 but the 960 is around $200

The drop from a 970 to a 660 is huge. I would not do that.
