If you want to spend so much on a gaming rig, definately don't sell yourself short. The ram linked is not that great, such as the g.skill due to it having a 1.5-1.6 volt. That means you might have to play with it in bios to get it to even be stable. Plus the timings are pretty bad for DDR3 1600's. Here is a much better set of ram, currently out of stock but stable at 1.5v and tighter timings.
Case: Go Haf 922 imo, almost as big as the 932, is cheaper, and just as good airflow. Unless you absolutely want the bigger case. But the difference is marginal.
Don't go watercooling. Air is currently just as effective as water cooling, costs less, doesn't require as much effort, and doesn't need maintenance like water cooling does. Plus, as a general water has a chance to break or leak and then there goes your expensive rig. If a fan breaks just replace it.
