Only need to go 16gb or higher in ram if you are doing some major editing or rendering.

ok I am just trying to save as much money as well staying around the $1000 range and trying to get it all from one place not many different places so I need the best build I can get from amazon or newegg or tiger direct.

Switched it over to a kraken x40 which is good cooler and added the case to the list: This is what I would suggest building if your willing to pay the little extra. You can try to use your case first if so take $88 off the price.

Both boards are excellent if you wish to order the Gigabyte GA-H87N-WIFI Mini ITX LGA1150 Motherboard intstead. Its $1 cheaper than the msi from Newegg

Both are very similar but I would choose the EVGA GeForce GTX 770 with EVGA ACX Cooler, it beats the Gigabyte when both are OCed on the benchmarks. Plus it's overall length is 1/2" smaller, doesn't sound like much but in every micro build, it can mean a huge difference

In a mirco build case, depending on the heat push out from the graphics card and not knowing what the cooling is like on his E - Machines case he is already using. I would highly recommend it
