@gflgs
getting i7 3970x is not all justified when i7 3930k overclocks same as it and costs half,and even if he goes 4gpu solution then 4X HD7970GHZ edition is a better solution than 4x gtx680 4gb.
Getting 32gb faster ram is a better solution because he won't ever need 64gb ram,its completely useless.He will even won't use 32gb.So faster ram solution is better.

Well supposedly the Titian drops on the 18th, so I think that would be a much better card for him, 2 of them would be very close to 4 680's with less heat issues and should be better in rendering.

Thats right,even if he spends $3000 he will be able to play games at highest,i7 3930k is the best choice.
3x geforce titan is the card he should get.

Again same suggestion. Man there is no point to spend $1000 for i7 3970x. He can easily get i7 3930k for $550,both overclocks same,so i7 3930k is the best choice.
4x gtx680 won't give much benifit,better to spend on 3x geforce titan.

I do NOT recommend the ASrock X79 mobos. The chipset has a little fan that ramps up when under load which is fine, but will not slow back down after the chipset is cooled. This may happen only with some boards, but if you're going for a silent build, consider a motherboard without a tiny little fan.

The 990x is still an absolute beast and only bested by a couple CPUs.

I also recommend watiting for the 900D from corsair. It should come out soon, and it looks MUCH better than the 800D. Instead of getting 64GB RAM, (which is pointless for anything) get that.

Yes & this is why i7 3930k is the best overall choice.

64GB isn't honestly that much, you can easily use that doing what he'll be doing.
