Hardcore gaming = inexpensive motherboard that allows you fat OCs and is good quality. Biostar Biostar Biostar!

If you got the cash and want the gimmicks, AsRock Fatal1ty and Asus Republic of Gamer boards are nice.

This

or this(i prefer this one i know most will not)

Before someone comes in and tells you asrock is cheap garbage, they have REALLY moved there game up in the last few years and there higher end boards are amongst the best overclocking(and looking in my opinion)boards around now, whatever you do don't grab an MSI, they have been popping if you do heavy overclocks on them.

You might want to go to the Intel section...this is the AMD section.Your throwing around alot of specs,most of which you don't really need I'm guessing.What monitor resolution do you want to game at?For a hardcore gaming rig all you need is a 2500k and a 6950 or 560Ti/570 for most single monitor setups.

Asus Rampage Extreme IV, and have the same board %90 of owners of that socket buy, or the one I would grab ASRock X79 Extreme9, looks bada$$ed, plus newer high end asrock boards are really solid, and great overclockers.

You have 2 threads asking about a hardcore gaming machine, and you do not need an x79 motherboard for gaming. Sandybridge or Ivy Bridge is all you need for gaming. If you want to waste a ton of money with a 3960X, feel free, but please do not expect to get any better FPS than you would with something reasonable.

Personally, I am getting the Rampage, putting an i7-3820 in it as soon as possible, and not looking back.
I can hold out to ivybridge -E and I only recommend socket 2011 path if you prepare to do the same. The first wave of normal IB chips (on top of reportedly being delayed in shipping to consumers until summer/juneish) will only be socket 1155. Since we're already waiting, you could also hold out and get the SR-X from EVGA. If you're going to do socket 2011, why not Zoid... I mean ... get something where there's two of them.
