My $3000 budget needs to include my monitors and water cooling. I need to get new monitors, and i want to do water cooling this time around (not a must).

Are you going to be putting your graphics in the loop as well?

Yes, I don't see any other alternative with the r9 290x graphics

I won't be making this purchase until mid November! I want to see how the graphics card market looks then in case they decide to throw in freebies to compete with nvidia. This gives me time to kink out the details on this build.

If you decide against the water loop, custom air cooled 290X's are coming out towards the end of November if you feel like waiting enough tongue.gif

This is what I am going to do! I think i should have a look at the R9 290's as well and maybe crossfire them if they can keep the TDP down. It will also give me a chance to see what AMD has to say about Kaveri, and Nvidia about their 780ti. It may make more sense for me to hold off on a water cooling loop and add it in at a future date. Put my money into the system! It is just soo difficult waiting for the information from these companies. It is getting out of control how they are running their PR for these products.

Only reason to have a X79 mobo is to have 3+ video cards or if there is a use for a 6 core processor. Z87 is the way to go. The X99 chipset will probably be out sometime next year.

The R9 290x is a bit overkill for your monitors, the R9 290x and R9 280x don't have much difference at 1080p gaming. It shines more at higher res like 2k+
Even with the 120 Hz, you can stick with a 280x.

As for the other parts, seems solid enough.

Here's a plan using the parts you picked out. That should leave you at ~$2850 for everything, you can get yourself a keyboard and mouse as well... as long as I didn't miss anything.

If you decide to go xfire 290 or 290x and plan on OCing, 760 wont be enough. The 290x's are reporting anywhere from ~300w to 500w by themselves (300 is on the low side of OCing and 500 is with modded BIOS and 1.35+ volts). So keep that in mind as you decide on what PSU you want wether or not you will OC. At stock settings a 760 would be OK but I personally wouldnt go below 850 (and even that may not be enough) if you are planning on xfire in the future.
