    + Storage Drives etc

    I'm not buying all of it from newegg since some of their prices are off, the links are for specs etc.

    Which motherboard do you guys recommend? Should i change any other parts?

    I just picked up the 850W Corsair and it is plenty, the larger 1200 might be a bit of over kill. - Not sure what you are looking at paying for it,
    but it may help with the cost of something else. - But a good investment at least.

    I'm in the same boat as you, OP. I was thinking about going with IB for a new water build, but that doesn't look like it will pan out. The 3930K is looking more attractive every day.

    I'm an Asus fan, and I like the features of the RoG boards. I just don't think I can live with a red and black mobo in my blue and black theme. I'm looking at the Sabertooth or the P9X79 Pro. The ASRock X79 Extreme 6 boards look nice though too.
