Honestly, if you're getting an X79, go big or go home with the Core i7-3960X. Everything else you could accomplish with a Core i7-3770K and some elbow grease.

If you're playing games on one monitor, then you can stop at a GTX 670 or Radeon HD 7970.

^ True dat. The premium you pay for 2 more cores, the Zeon'ish X79 board and extra dimms just doesn't compute in real money, in real work, or in the real world.
