Will you be doing much simulation or anything? Because outside simulation CAD won't be particularly CPU heavy and I can't see the cache making much of a difference anyway. Cache only really shows it's head in synthetic benchmarks which are engineered to run out of cache, it just doesn't happen in real life that often if at all.

Most likely not. I don't mind going to the 3930k if it's not worth it.

Will you be doing much in the way of lengthy high-detail renderings either? Honestly, if the answer is no, then I would say forget the entire X79 chipset and forget the high-end motherboard since you won't be overclocking.

In that case I would suggest going for a z77 motherboard, mid-range, with a 3570 (non-K since you won't be overclocking) and a decent amount of RAM. Couple that with a smaller SSD (120-240GB) for OS, applications and working files. Then, get a video card which has been proven to work well with your software and you will be set.

In all this would probably cost around $1500 and you won't notice any difference in your work. It's really a case of "if YOU don't know why you need it then you probably don't".

Even if you do plan on rendering any decent amount I would still say stick with z77 and grab a 3770. Only go to x79 if you will be rendering enough that the time savings could be worth it.

Of course, if you just want an expensive computer then by all means, go ahead. I am only making these suggestions because you don't seem to really understand what you need for the work you will be doing. No offence intended of course.

EDIT: Just realized that I missed a post on your software needs back a bit. I would concur that you should get a workstation card for this build and drop the 680s. As I said, I still don't think you will benefit from the more powerful CPUs if you won't be doing any simulation or much in the ways of extensive rendering. Generally just the design work won't need much power.
