I choose Haswell-E i7 - 5820k because it have 15MB cache, 6 cores, 12 threads, 3.3GHz base,and 3.6GHz boost, and it is overclocked CPU so you can tune this CPU with an adequate CPU cooler
I choose Corsair Hydro 105 watercooling for this CPU because it have 240mm radiator so that means you don't need high performance fans to keeps thing cool, with 240mm radiator it can provide double cooling compare to air plus quiter
I choose Gigabyte X99 motherboard because they are well known manufacturer and they been trusted by millions of people
I choose 16GB DDR4 RAM because it's plenty of RAM to runs any type of games and applications, but you can still add up to 64GB DDR4
I choose ASUS STRIX DCU2 GTX 970 because its a non reference of GTX 970 which provide double cooling, and factory overclocking. However, you can overclocked this thing further more than what manufacturer set because it design for gamer overclocking in mind.
I choose 3TB HDD + 120GB SSD, so you can install OS onto your SSD and games on big momma 3TB HDD
EVGA G2 750W PSU should be plenty enough for your rig and maybe in the future as well. However, you can upgrade it anytime
Corsair Osibidian 750D full tower case can fit anything in the market throw at. This case can fit a 280mm radiator on the top, 240mm radiator in the front,and even 140mm radiator in the back.
