My System Specs


^ The key will be something you missed above..What Resolution? Most are going with a 1920 x 1080 Res, some of us enthusiasts are going for larger monitors with higher Resolution, such as 27" 2560 x 1440 or 30" 2560 x 1600, the latter sizes require a PC with some good "Poop", the 1080 Resolution requires "less poop" ;)
Dont confuse size of screen with in a 60" Flatscreen is 1080....same as a 22" Monitor that is 1080...the higher the Resolution the crisper the details look.

The Z77 chipset you have would be where to start, the I7 X79 chipset (the 2nd one listed) would likely be more than you need, unless of course you ultimately want the 2 higher resolution Monitors I pointed out above (2560 x 1440 or 2560 x 1600), then indeed the X79 would suit your needs fine.

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530
