Not at all bad! I need that CPU to be honest, but that is well expensive at the moment!!!
Why not opt for a 4 core i7 and save yourself... well... around $800

i think i have found a better CPU, Intel Core i7 3930K [BX80619I73930K] - $679.00 : PC Case Gear its still a 6 core, just lower L3 cache, on the i7 3960X its 15MB, on the 3930K its 12MB, i save almost $600, for almost the same performance.

You are throwing a lot of money into a rig that has components that haven't really been tested. I would hate to see you be a guinea pig for the x79, because imo it's a waste, but it looks like any kind of a budget isn't a problem for you and you will have plenty of money for Q1 upgrades when Ivy Bridge comes along.

The rig itself looks very nice...a bit over the top for a gaming rig imo, but very nice specs.

yes, ivy bridge is comming out and im going to wait to see what they have to offer, the rig itself is not just for gaming, its for everything, plus a little show off built for clients to show what is possible with the right ammount of money.
also if you look at my other threads, i have a gaming rig, so this one wont be used much for gaming. its more of a benchmarking, video photo editing and as listed above.

Change a few parts around,

CPU:

Motherboard:
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=18775

Keeping the Kingston hyperX SSD's listed above

Keeping WD storge drive listed above

Graphics Cards:
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=18698

Unsure of RAM yet, something either G.SKILL or Kingstong, to make with all blue theme

and the rest of the parts all the same
