If you do go for that case make sure to add a second 120mm intake fan to the front of the case as only one is supplied. The extra air flow will make a huge difference, especially to you HDDs and for moving the hot air from your GPU. Peronally I'd recommend the Cooler Master Silencio 650 (if you want a silent case) as you can hook your liquid cooler exhaust fan up to the top of the case and have an extra fan exhausting out of the back. the NXZT model doesn't have the extra fan position.

I'd definitely go with the 4790, I'm pretty staunch about that. Others may have different opinions.

This is the PSU I'd recommend. Corasir HX750-80. A higher rated PSU won't damage your parts, I guarantee that. It will only supply as much power is needed by each component.

Let me know a budget for your motherboard, but a Z97-A should be more than adequate.

For a liquid cooler I'd recommend the Corsair h80i.
Sense the case I have does not have the extra fan position do you think I should go with a different case? As far as budget for the motherboard goes I wanna keep the cost to 1000. Right now I am at 600-673. As for the cpu you are correct about other opinions on that. On my reddit post someone claimed they had no problems with the Xeon when it came to performance and claimed their was no difference between the 4790 and the Xeon. Although they did not specify if they ever used the 4790 Also how do I determine if all of this will fit in the case I get. Also how do i know if the parts I purchase are compatible. Cause I know the motherboard has to have a specific slot for the CPU.

Yes they would, it's a very good case.

As for your CPU (4790) it will be a socket LGA1150. If you're going ASUS for a motherboard (I would personally, they're excellent) you'll want a Z97 series. I'd recommend this one.

Very nice and I suppose this would be beyond the budget but excellent for routing the cabling out of sight. http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-...308457&sr=1-43

With a motherboard that has an LGA1150 socket will it hold the Xeron processor if I choose to get that one and what is the difference between the asrock motherboard and the asus one. I was asking because if I get the cheaper xeron processor and the cheaper mother board I can get a better case another user suggested but if I go with the asus motherboard and 4790 processor I will get one of the cases I listed in my last post. Besides the asrock is cheaper I know it would be better to get the asus now if I planned on getting the asus mother board in the future but. I was thinking if I get the asrock motherboard and the only part I plan on replacing later is upgrading the asrock motherboard to the asus one in the future. That would not be too much of a loss Also can both motherboards hold an ssd ?

The best thing to do is check benchmarks for the Xeon versus the 4790, here for instance, and make your decision educated. Considering the Xeons are more commonly used in servers it just seems a strange choice to me and you'd get better performance out of the i7. Whichever motherboard you choose I'd just stick with it, don't buy a motherboard with the intention of upgrading it, that's just wasting money. I always recommend ASUS because I always use them, but the ASRock one may be perfectly adequate for your needs.

As for the cases you linked the H230 looks pretty decent. And all modern motherboards will support an SSD, just make sure they have SATA3 6Gb/s connections.

For your build I would be looking at a 650W minimum PSU, 500W will be borderline at best. It's always best to have headroom for power so go high and save yourself any hassle. If you take a look at my specs you'll see I'm running on an HX850-80 Gold modular. It's more than I'll ever need while running one GPU but the overhead is there if I need it for other expansions, and I don't want to be running anywhere near close to the top rating of my PSU. I'd recommend either a 650W or better still a 750W.

As for the CPU it's your call, the 4790 will be more than adequate for what you need and I think the Xeon will be overkill. The CPU will come with a stock cooler, but you'll be much better off with an aftermarket cooler. Do you prefer air or liquid? Answer that and we'll look at coolers, it's relevant as some air coolers may not fit into your case (which case are you using?) as they're quite big, and you'd need to check whether it will physically impact the RAM. Are you staying with the ASRock motherboard?
what did you mean when you said I need to check and see if it will effect the ram?

Some air coolers are huge and cover the RAM slots on the motherboard, RAM with big heatsinks may not fit then as it's too big. If you go for a water cooler you won't have to worry about that.
