Help with picking parts for extreme PC

Hello, I'm looking for help with picking parts for a 3D modeling, Gaming, and video editing PC. I did a little research and have some parts picked out, but I'm not sure if they'd be the best choice. lso, I'm looking for an awesome case . Also I cant decide if it'd be better to go with an m2 drive or raided SSD's. Here are the parts I came up with:

Processor: i7 6950X
GPU: EVGA SC 1080
Motherboard: MSI Godlike Gaming X99 Carbon (not sure on this)
System Drive: Samsung 850 EVO SSD or Samsung SM 951 M.2
Corsair X1000i
Corsair hydro 115i
Corsair dominater platinum ddr4

I based the parts off other builds and I'm not to sure if there would be better options. What would be recommended otherwise? Also what would be a good case to use? I know its a rather expensive PC and that's why I would like to make sure I get it right the first time. Thanks for any help! :)

    That's some impressive components you've found, although I'd probably change some of the parts:

    CPU: 6800k / 6900K
    - This depends on how much CPU you need. As they either have 6 or 8 cores, you can choose. The 6950x is an behemoth of a CPU, but waaay overpriced for the extra things you get, compared to the 6900k.

    MOBO: ASUS ROG Strix X99 Gaming
    - I'm not quite sure what they price for the mobo you picked is in your country, but as in DK, there's a price difference off just about $240. I'd not say I reccomend this motherboard, but I just feel like you chose the absoloutly top of the top motherboard you could find, which is also fine, but maybe it just won't give you as much as you'd hoped for.

    PSU: EVGA supernova G3 750W
    - 1000W would be way too much for your current system. The 750 might still be a bit too high, but considering you're getting high-end hardware, you'd probably like to have some OC overhead :). You can pretty much choose any PSU from a reputable company, I just personally like EVGA. Not to Corsair isn't good, I just prefer EVGA.

    RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200MHz 32GB
    - Your RAM choice is way too expensive for what you actually get. These won't be perfect either, but won't be as expensive. You can choose whatever you'd like, as long as it's fitting inside your motherboard.

    That's what I'd like to change about the system.
    ANyway, good luck finding the right system! :)
