People have been haveing complications with the new sanforce chip. I did some studying and discovered the OCZ RevoDrive X2 I like it because it uses the more stable sanforce chip and its speeds from read and wright to iops is much faster than just about anything in that price range.

580, even if single, and sli'ed down the road beats 570 just because you are getting the best of everything with your budget, and I think 580 would be a better match for your new rig

Other than that, you have me drooling over here. Is gonna be a great build man. Kudos
After some careful studying I found that overall the only difference between the 570 and 580 is 10 to 15 fps. an epeen booster and extra 150 dollars per card just is not worth that minimal gain.

the ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z should work with the Revo according to what I have read and this review on Newegg.

"Just received it today replaced a Asus Maximus IV Extreme P67. Dropped it in set everything as I had the P67 OC and all and booted up. No problems what so ever.
Works great with my OCZ Revo x2 PCIe drive as did the P67 board.
Very nice!!!"
