-id suggest the z77-v pro for the motherboard
-get either gskill ares 2x4gb or the corsair vengeance. whichever is cheaper
-id suggest getting a noctua nh-d14 over a h100i
-for the video card, get a windforce gtx 670 from gigabyte or a msi power edition gtx 670. whichever is cheaper.
Thanks for the suggestion, and yes it does make sense to get the NH-D14 over the H100i for just being a few degrees warmer and nearly half of the price cheaper (from where I live). Oh well, I guess I will have to push water cooling off this time.
Corsair HX/AX series, seasonic X series for PSU
case....whatever catches your eye. If you like understated cases, then corsair have some nice ones, such as the 400/500r, or the 550D/650D. Flashy cases, maybe coolermaster HAF series? Just throwing out some case suggestions.
And high end coolers really don't make much of a difference for ivy brigde, if you really want to push the chip, you'll want to delid it. An NH-D14 on a delidded ivy, to the best of my knowlegde, will defeat a h100i on a non delidded ivy brigde chip.
Regarding water cooling, it's generally accepted, go either full water cool, or air cooling. So I recommend the NH-D14, or a XSPC watercooling kit
