Here is my build http://pcpartpicker.com/user/donovan_staab/saved/gYKV3C

I would like to also know if you can help me find one with all black cables... or all white or all grey or any combination... I need some sort of a neutral color...

you don't need anything close to a 750 watt for this build. even with another 960 in SLI, a setup I'd never recommend, and both gpus and the i5 overclocked to their absolute stable max, you wouldn't need more than a good 550 watt psu to power that no problem. what's your max budget? I'd get the Z97A krait and the Cryorig H7 cpu cooler. a better motherboard and some price headroom to put the money into a better psu like you want. also, the R9 380 is a better gpu. I'd go with this:

the psu has all black cables. it isn't modular, but in this case it's not an issue as the psu is covered and there is plenty of space for the cables. I've done a similar build recently and this case cleans up nicely: http://imgur.com/a/Y1aGl
