Hey guys, I'm new to the PC gaming community and would like some advice and/or suggested setups for a high-end build. I'm looking for excellent water cooling, excellent lifespan, excellent graphics, excellent speed, storage and power. I'd like for it all to be inside a mid-tower case if possible and I'm also looking for something capable of working with my HDTV. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0078LSTAM?vs=1 Just let me know what you guys think can and can't be done. Budget is $4k at most Anything will be much appreciated, thanks for your time. I look forward to your guys' input. Thanks again.

This build will absolutely kill everything your throw at it :p  Also since your $300 under budget you have room to buy peripherals or upgrade to a high-end custom water cooling loop.
