X99 Pro or UD4 IMO
16GB of whatever's fastest with the lowest latency and still aesthetically pleasing in your budget. I'd buy KLEVV but I don't know about availability where you are.

5820 K is much cheaper too.

So looking at the Asus Boards (and assuming I upgrade the CPU at a later stage)

From 5820K (now as a purchase) to in the future (as a secondhand) Intel 8 Core i7-5960X

http://www.asus.com/au/Compare/

X99-DELUXE

40-Lane CPU-
5 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16, x16/x16, x16/x16/x8, x8/x8/x16/x8, x8/x8/x8/x8/x8 mode) *1
1 x PCIe 2.0 x4 (max at x4 mode) *2
28-Lane CPU-
3 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16, x16/x8, x8/x8/x8)
2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x1 mode)
1 x PCIe 2.0 x4 (max at x4 mode) *2

X99-PRO

40-Lane CPU-
3 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16, x16/x16, x16/x16/x8) *1
28-Lane CPU-

1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode) *3
2 x PCIe 2.0 x1 (x1 mode) *3

X99-DELUXE/U3.1

40-Lane CPU-
5 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16, x16/x16, x16/x16/x8, x8/x8/x16/x8, x8/x8/x8/x8/x8 mode) *1
1 x PCIe 2.0 x4 (max at x4 mode) *2
28-Lane CPU-

2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x1 mode)

Which is the best of the boards?
