Option A - Corsair Platinum 32Gb DDR3 2400 $ 539.99
Option B - Corsair Platinum 32Gb DDR3 2133 $ 449.99

Option A - Asus Rampage IV Black $ 539.99 (Out of stock anyway)
Option B - Asus Rampage IV Extreme $ 449.99

Option A - Core i7 4930k $ 579.99
Option B - Core i7 3930k $ 479.99 (via Amazon)

Option A - Corsair AX1200 $ 269.99
Option B - Corsair AX860 $ 169.99

Making those adjustments and only doing one GPU right off the bat saves me over a grand and lets me get the build started very quickly. This has turned into the "hold me over until X99" build, so I'm going to do it in 2 waves between now and Jan/Feb. I'll link to the build thread once I create it.

You can find just as good PSU´s as Corsair for less money

They dont make the units they sell if you did not know

As for those RAM kits same thing way overpriced
