What colour theme should i go for? I'm stuck between Black/White and Black/Red with RGB Leds( so cool). And also, what motherboard do you think it would fit the best with the case. I have a 4670k and i need a Z87 1150 motherboard for around 150 bucks. What do you think?
For the motherboard, save up another 50 bucks and get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131989
It will last you longer and Asus mobos are amazing! Also, if you are willing to save another $10 on top of that 50, I recommend the Maximus VI Gene. I like the Gene over the Hero because the Gene is a mATX board and it looks extremely clean in the C70.
Also, for your theme, I would recommend getting the Black/Red since it seems you think it looks better. I personally have a Black/Red theme and I love it.
Here are some pics of my build for reference why I prefer an mATX board w/ Black/Red theme:

Also, pertaining to your GPU, if I were in your position; I would save up another $100 and get a 770. It will be more 'future-proof' and last you an extra year which needless to say, is worth that extra $100. Of course, if that's out of the question, a 760 would do fine for a few years!
