My rig right now: http://imgur.com/a/KLHzL

Right now I have the replacement motherboard, cpu and hsf.

EVGA x79 CLASSIFIED
INTEL i7-3820
INTEL Socket 2011 OEM HSF (water is far too dangerous in my household)

I need a new case, I want a new psu, tho i may need a new psu or at least extension cables once the new case is purchased.

Corsair COSMOS 1000 ($100 from a friend, tho open to suggestions, trying to stay right around this price point)
Seasonic 1250W modular from ebay for ~$150, most have warranty until 2019 or later.


I am going to use my old ram, video cards, hdd's and ssd.

16GB G.Skill Ripjaws Z 2133-11-11-11-31 4x4GB
120GB Samsung 840 EVO
3TB 7.2K 64MB Seagate
1TB WD Green
2x GTX 670 FTW 2GB

I'm also in the market for a third & fourth gtx 670 ftw [2gb] (would be willing to trade old case, psu, motherboard, cpu for 2x gtx 670 ftw 2gb.)

INTEL i5-3570k
ASRock z77 Extreme 4
Zalman CNPS10x + Cougar 120mm 74cfm low db
----
Thermaltake Bronze 80+ 750 Watt Modular PSU
Lian-Li Metal Boned K70 Mid-Tower

Thanks for looking.
I know it's older gear, but I'm hoping that its an effective upgrade that keeps my gaming rig running stable and able for the next 2 years.
I purchased the x79 mobo for $~$85, the CPU for $200 & the HSF for $20. I hope to sell the old mobo, cpu, hsf for about $200 and case/psu for about $100. All in all, I hope it's worth the projected $250 out of pocket cost.
Input before I get too deep into this project is greatly appreciated.
