Damn, looks good! Only thing i would change is that you definitely wont be needing that beefy of a PSU. I think you'd be more than find with a 850w.

Ok thanks I was thinking of over clocking and possibly getting another GPU so I might just go for the 1000w then.

Well considering that two 580s can run off a 850psu with no problems and the 680s require alot less juice i'm just saying that a 1000w psu would be overkill.

Personally I'd drop the CPU down to a 3930K to save some coin, you'll get around the same clocking potential. And like said above, drop the PSU to a 850-1000W then you'll be golden.

Honestly? A 100MHZ stock clock difference (you'll OC them anyway lol) and the "Extreme Edition" Badge, thats about it.
Get the 3930K, and as for a PSU I would really recommend the Seasonic Platinum-1000.

the 3930k and the 3960k is only like a 2-3% performance hit but you save 500$ :)
