Advice Needed: New Build PC (BF4)

To begin with, I've been planning on building a new PC, complete PC builder BEGINNER, been doing research.

Please and thank you to everyone who has put time and thought to replying back here. Thanks :)

Budget: USD $1000 - $1300
Function: Main computer usage, movies and BF4 gaming (on High mostly with some Ultra settings).
Monitor: SAMSUNG B300 Series S23B300B Black 23" (I already own this).

>>> So I need help on this buylist for construction:

OS: Windows 8
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5ghz
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16 GB (8*2)
Harddrive: WD Black 1 TB
Motherboard: ____________
GPU: GTX 760 4GB ........ vs. GTX 670 4 GB
Power: ____________
Case: ____________
*CD Reader and Sound Card, but I'll get something cheap/decent.

Questions:
1) I have no idea about Motherboards + Power Supply + Case
2) I was thinking 750? I live in Hong Kong by the way, does that change anything?
3) Looking for a non-flashy/classic looking case that brought me to the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2, but I saw that it had vibration issues. >>> Am I looking for a mid-tower? Any recommendations?
4) Also, do I need to keep in check that my current or voltage is below a certain value, I read somewhere about 1.5V for the CPU processor or something on another thread*********
5) Any recommendations on the graphics card? BF4 recommends GTX 660 3GB*********

>>> Am I missing some component? I was planning on using the fans from the cases, is this enough?

I fully appreciate your advices! I need some help!
