My System Specs


Overall it seems like you just picked a lot of expensive parts. Some of them are very good, but if you don't have a specific need for server style CPU (or 2 of them) then there is no reason to get them. For gaming go for 3930k if you want expensive and useful for gaming, or if you don't want to spend all the money drop to a i7 3770k. For the ram up it to at least 1600mhz, but with your budget I would be going 1866mhz (2x8gb is more than enough).
Desktop: Arc Midi R2, Z77-D3H, 3570K 1.09v/4.1ghz with Zalman Optima Cooler, Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb@1866mhz, XFX R9 280X DD, Bitfenix Fury 750w, WD Black 1TB, Intel 530 120GB
Away from home light Gamer: Acer Aspire 15.6", A8-3500m undervolt and OC to 2Ghz, 2x4gb Corsair Vengeance, Crucial M500 240gb
