I would spend less on the psu and case and go for an Intel build and add a SSD. - money does not seem to be an object.

Allrighty, is there a case and a Intel build you can suggest for me that will work flawlessly because I'm tired of doing the research hahahhaha and what will be a good power supply because I'm confused wether to choose between the 1000 w and greater or the 750 w for a power source. Thanks again

Very good psu - not Platinum but it is gold - also able to do multi gpu if you want to in the future.
If you're looking for white...

Don't get the coolermaster power supply. There are less expensive power supplies but the one I linked is a very good one. Also look for XFX - made by Seasonic, or Seasonic, Antec... The memory I suggested was 1.5V RAM the memory you chose is 1.65 - to make it run at 1.5 it will have to be clocked slower to adhere to the Haswell cpu specs. Every thing else should be fine. I do like EVGA gpu - have had very good customer support. As for the mobo, I've only used Gigabyte & Asus although I think I may go AsRock for my next one.
-Bruce
Edit: I see Seasonic makes that psu for coolermaster - no problem there.
You should be extremely happy with the performance of this build.
Just read the JonnyGuRu review.
