That board will not work with the CPU you currently have selected. It will work with the CPU I mentioned above though.

You are more than welcome, be sure to get the GPU from somewhere else like I posted, it will save you some money.
I have been building PC's for a few years now and have never heard of the company all your links show. I therefore cannot say if they are good or bad, but it certainly looks like you can save some money if you shop elsewhere.

I might suggest sticking with the Ivy bridge CPU and then consider this ASRock mobo !

ASRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional

Less money still nice;

I have used Scan many many times over the years, they are a reputable and well respected company. I have never had a single issue with them.

That is a good point. Have you changed your mind on the case since your original post? And if so to what?

Looking at the case in your original post it has a massive fan in the roof, I had similar in my old Antec 1100 case, and sadly it had no mounting points for 120 or 140mm fans so there was no way to fit a watercooler at the top. I can't find the specs for that case but you might want to check it, if it doesn't allow for 2x120mm fans in the roof then you are really going to struggle to fit the H100i in that case.
