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?

ASRock teamed up with overclocker Nick Shih to make a high-end overclocking-based, yet functional for all users, motherboard named the Z77 OC Formula. It appears they have achieved it. Read More.

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.
