Update: I elaborated my description, added some additional photos, and tried to re-manage my cables. Oh, I also added a backplate to the 780ti.
This is my current main setup. I also have constructed the D-Device 8000 (My GF current setup) & the original D-Device 4000 (My Bedroom TV Pc / Old Old Gaming Setup). I will add these to my completed builds in the near future.
CPU: i7 for hyper threading / gen 4 because why not
CPU Cooler: Best you can buy before moving to closed loop liquid. I prefer to keep water out of my cases for the time being. Not ready to make that leap.
Motherboard: I have had less than great experience with Asus boards, so I'm rolling the dice on good reviews for ASRock. 4 Stars because the south bridge heat sink (even though mostly for show) was a little loose.
Memory: Crucial all the way. I don't need fancy looking memory because of the giant air cooler. Crucial Balistix VLP is so low profile that it sits flush with or lower than the clips that hold it in.
Storage: SSD for OS/Games, Hybrid for Music. SSD is the best, but to be honest the hybrids are amazing bang for the buck.
GPU: Later this year I will be adding a 2nd 780ti to the build. That is why I went with the reference model of the card. The reference cooler is ideal for SLI on a Z87 board. Latest edition to the setup was a back plate for my GPU, just because :)
Case: I had previous exp with this case doing a workstation at my job. Its a nice case all in all. If you are using extensions like me, you will have difficulty finding room to hide all the cable. I'm wondering if the Cooler Master HAF X Blue case that is setup just like mine has better management. Long term I need to get custom cables and ditch the extensions. There is too much cable behind the motherboard plate to manage properly.
PSU: SeaSonic is pricey. You get what you pay for. Gold rating, great warranty, and truly full modular.
