1) Are you going to be overclocking your cpu?
a) If not, i suggest the i7-4771 or i7 4770 and use the stock cooler. This will save you about 130$.
b) You do not need such a motherboard. I understand that you will be adding a second graphics card but you basically paying for branding with ROG
products. If you still want a really high end motherboard i suggest the Gigabyte G1 Sniper, Asrock Z87M OC or the Asus Gryphon.

The other parts are alright although you could get the RAM for cheaper (but of course come people prefer brands so i'll leave that up to you)

OK. I understand for the aesthetics :) . Instead of the H100i i suggest the newer H105 which is better at cooling
