I'd go with Haswell but you don't need the H100i, drop that and get a Noctua D14 instead. I would go with a Haswell build, don't let the "Ivy is a better overclocker" people persuade you otherwise, they said the exact same thing when Ivy Bridge was released. You don't need 16GB of RAM.

What store are you buying from? I can suggest parts if I knew that.

What i mean is.

Is 50$ worth it on haswell? And z87 mobos are more priced than z77

Is it worth using extra bucks for that?

You originally linked to a store from Slovenia, I would think importing goods from Canada would incur significant customs fees and shipping, would it not?
