These are all horrific selections unless you basically have no budget. In which case you're going to need three of either:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236262
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824260111&Tpk=dell%20u2714hm
Depending on if you want to game on 5760x1080 or 7680x1440. +3x 7970s on a custom water loop to run the monitors.

If you have a budget and want to stick on single-monitor gaming, then you're picking some of the worst cost-inefficient components for:
CPU
mobo
RAM
SSD
PSU
Case

Though I suppose MAAAAAYBE certain VM uses can justify the i7-3930k.

I guess that's true. They are a good deal cheaper and I ha e heard people say the 7970 is real powerhouse. I will definitely consider getting a 7000 series. I could save a good bit of coin.

I don't really have a budget, I also want to treat myself. Is that so wrong? Lol I never said I was trying to be cost efficient, I know if I had to I could probably build myself a decent gaming rig for under 1500-2000. Maybe less, who knows. However that isn't what I want. I want something to play games at their highest settings and experiment with VMs. Possibly run a server out of my PC for different things. My interests change from day to day, so I need a PC that can keep up with me.

I sincerely hope that didn't come off as rude, I was merely trying to explain myself. I do appreciate you trying to save me money though. That was kind of you. So are there any suggestions to make this build better? Oh btw, just because I don't have a budget that doesn't mean to suggest something like an extreme processor. Lol keep it upper-mid range I guess we will call it. Lol or mid-upper? Something like that. Lol

*shrug* Whatever floats your boat. You don't need a water-cooled setup to play games on their highest settings though. Certainly not at 1920x1080 resolution.

As for what could make your system better... sure. Add three 7970s, water cooling for each, and three of the Dell u2714hm screens for multi-monitor gaming, as I posted above. I wasn't being rude with those suggestions. If you are wealthy enough that amount of spending isn't going to be significant, why not?

Lol not exactly wealthy enough, but I will be coming into some money, I will leave it at that. I know you weren't being rude, that's why I said I appreciated what you were trying to do. I also know you don't need water to max games. A lot of people just like to water cool because it looks cool, and a lot of people do it for performance enhancements. I would like a little bit of both. I will try to see if I can get 3 new monitors but that may be a tall task. Lol I also need to find the room. Haha

wish that was the case for me lol but water-cooling lets me achieve some of the best overclocks and its addicting rolleyes.gif

Which is what I want, I want great overclock for things I may want to experiment with, plus having another hobby aside from just building computers would be nice. I need to occupy myself with as much as I can. Plus I will have steady income so I can upgrade and maintain the loop and the rig. If I so choose to go that route.

I also can't really find a 7970 that goes well with my rig. I mean the color scheme, of course if I go with the BLACKHAWK or XL R2 it won't really matter since it won't be out in the open.

Well, yeah, of course. The thing to realize there is that you are NOT purchasing components so that you run your software better. You couldn't care less about software performance. You're purchasing your components for recreational benchmarking, which is a very different objective than running games.

I am thus a very bad person to advise you, and apparently MX5J6 - because I don't give a crap about recreational overclocking or case-interior aesthetics. I base all my recommendations on what will give the best gaming performance given the budget. Which is a different set of priorities.

OK I'm actually kind of interested in what you would suggest I use if I wanted good gaming performance and to use VMs. If your suggestions really are worth saving a good chunk of change I will gladly take them deeply into consideration. I try to be open to all suggestions. I was just being stubborn.
