This is one of my build ideas. The Cooler Master fan is just temporary, I'll be doing a full liquid cooling loop later.
I might change the motherboard to one of these:
Asus Maximus VI Extreme
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC Force
ASRock Z87 OC Formula
MSI Z87 MPOWER
Thanks for all the help everyone! I saw the 7990 and I'm tempted by it.
Here are 2 options!

The main reason I'm considering a 7990 is because I want to do a quadruple monitor setup and 6 GB of RAM could help, and just to show off tongue.gif.
It will be used for gaming, video recording and rendering.

The PSU is overkill you dont need a AX760 for a system like that

550 watts can cover that just fine unless you add a second GTX 780

Good build, don't change anything, the sniper is a great board. It's nice to see a good build right from the start.

ASRock Z87 OC Formula all the way. Better than anything you listed and cant beat the price either. If not that Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC Force. Would not spend near $400 on a motherboard. Just plain unnecessary in the world of current PC building. Could channel those funds into something better or more useful. Like larger SSD, or second SSD for games. Could even use that saved money to buy a decent AIO cooler so you can have more fun overclocking on Haswell until you do your custom loop. Also, Memory is overpriced for what you are actually getting (Basic Cas 9 1600MHz memory, nothing special). For $20 more you can get 8GB G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 8GB 2400MHz for $71.99 right now at Newegg, so if you really need 16GB buy two for $144.

Lastly PSU is way overpriced and overpowered. You can get a Rosewill CAPSTONE-650 650W right now off Newegg for $68. Which will be more than enough for now, and even allow SLI 780's later on.

I'd rather get a fully modular, or at least semi-modular PSU.

Rosewill Capstone comes in both non modular and semi modular

There are a fully modular version of the Capstone coming soon as well

The modular version is $100, I might aswell get the Corsair, it's only $30 more, is fully modular, 750W and Platinum rated.
