And please use the edit function or use multi quote instead of making a new post.

Ok. Thanks that could work.

Has anyone heard or seen the performance of this: ASUS ROG Hero/Whetstone? And what is the difference between the ASUS ROG Hero/Alpha? Thanks.

These guys are right. TT products have questionable build quality. The EVGA unit will have better value for the long term. I personally would get the x99 setup over the z170 but that is just me. You mentioned getting the bigger power supply in the event you want to expand in the future. What would you expand to requiring more power besides more graphics cards?

If that is a possibility you will want a 40 PCIe lane CPU. 5930K or whatever the six series equivalent is called this go around.

On the memory side of things x99 is quad channel so a two stick kit is again leaving performance on the table. A 4x4gb kit would serve you much better.

What gpu are you planning on using?

Lian Li is very nice but at that point you might as well go caselabs.

x99 would in fact be better if overclocked to at least 4.0 ghz. I'm going with the 850 since I'll be running just one card on this rig. I don't plan on going to another graphics card. Ok 4x4 gb; better than 2x8 gb? I'm running a eVga 780TI Kingpin Classified.

4x4 is better than 2x8 in your situation. You will have the cpu to run it so might as well.
