My System Specs

Default

Looks very good. It does look like money is not an issue here and with that in mind why not go X79. Oh, except you mention the cost of SSDs... Well in that case I am not sure what is going on with your build. Regardless, I would say that you should look for some Intel 520 (or similar) and go RAID 0. Two 120GB would be nice and seeing that TRIM for RAID 0 on X79 will "soon" be available that is a suggestion that I feel confident in giving.

About your display, I would say Dell U2711. That said it won't feel that much bigger than your 24" 16:10. Personally I am partial to 16:10! I do own a U2711 and I like it despite the fact that it is 16:9. My U2711 is the one exception to the rule. Next for me though will be a 30" 2560X1600. Now that will be nice!

Anyway, nice build, it is clean and I like that. Keep up the good work!
