My System Specs

Default

I suggest you not to buy a X79 motherboard, those are made for people who needs 8 pci-express cards setups.

If it's for gaming the z77 motherboard with a 3570k or 3770k will get you way better performances.

This is what I'd suggest:

CPU: i5 3570k, this CPU produces less heat than the 3770k so you can clock it higher and get better performances in games.
Mobo: ASUS Z77 MAXIMUS V FORMULA
RaM: 16Gb(32Gb if you have too much money) of 1600MHz, higher MHz won't give you any noticeable extra performance
Video: GTX 680 4Gb SLI
HS: Corsair H100
