Mostly-black themed. I personally like the R4 because it looks nice, simple, and it's silent. If you prefer flashier cases, there are alternatives.

Christian,

 

It's not necessary to have a liquid based CPU cooling system. I selected a top rated air cooling based CPU cooler.

 

The SSD that I picked will be used as your bootup drive that will speed up boot times.

 

The HDD is a Western Digital Black Series, which is one of the higher rated drives in terms of reliability and performance.

 

The Mushkin RAM modules are made in the US of A, which is of higher quality than other brands, especially the poorly made G. Skill modules. Don't even consider G. Skill modules because those have a high failure rate.

 

The Sapphire R9 390x is an excellent built and high performing graphics card that you need for heavy duty gaming.

 

The computer case is a real cool mesh designed computer case that allows great airflow and it already comes with 2 built-in computer case fans. No need to buy extra case fans. 

 

 
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12S 55.0 CFM CPU Cooler  ($65.99 @ Amazon) 
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming 3 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard  ($128.02 @ Amazon) 
Storage: Sandisk Ultra II 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive  ($84.50 @ Amazon) 
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 390X 8GB Tri-X Video Card  ($423.98 @ Newegg) 
Case: NZXT Source 220 ATX Mid Tower Case  ($62.98 @ Newegg) 
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer  ($18.99 @ Amazon) 
Wireless Network Adapter: Rosewill N900PCE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter  ($29.99 @ Amazon)

Any good mojue and keyboard that can go with the budget?

mojue?

 

keyboard depends entirely on personal preference, and i am not a good person to ask about that.

I can, however, recommend the Logitch G930s for the color scheme
