Ok well I am aware some of the components in this PC could be considered "over-kill." This is because it's my dream PC. I can use it for near enough whatever I'd like. 1 day I could be gaming, the next running a server. Hell, with these stat's, I could probably do both.

Anyways, here's everything on my parts list, can you guys just tell me what will and wont go together?

The list of components can be found either via my secure newegg wish list link:

If you've managed to get this far down and have checked to see if they all work together, thanks a LOT! I really appreciate any help I get for this as I would like to buy the PC asap. Also, I am aware it's missing a case, the case I found the hardest part so if anyone could possibly choose me a case that would go with all this stuff again I'd appreciate it a lot :) . Any case will do however the cooler looking it is the better ;) 

Kind regards, thanks for taking the time to help me out,
Brad.

I'd advise against the 7950's and 64gb ram, get yourself a 690 or 7990. Get a Thor v2 case.

no. just no

-x79 is not for gaming
-ram is overkill in every possible way
-motherboard is uselessly overkill for gaming
-i7 3970x is a joke
-if you need that much ssd storage you got a problem
-you will want a higher performing 7970
-you have a problem if you can use up 4tb of storage
-you never need that much wattage
-cheapo watercooling is never a option
-if you can read english, then windows 7 ultimate is useless

now, i dont give a dam on how much money you can blow on a rig. but i will tell you that what i configure as of now will perform the same in gaming

get a new keyboard

get a new monitor. if you are willing to shop on ebay for a korean 1440p panel, they can be found for much cheaper

I'd advise you to listen to "TheBigTroll."

If you wanna just go and blow money on something crazy that's fine, but for a gaming rig it's throwing cash away.

As I've said in the OP, this is far from just a "gaming rig". And yes, I am aware its "overkill" too. This PC is supposed to be able to handle near enough EVERYTHING I do on a PC. This includes but is far from limited too running multiple webservers from my computer, gaming, running 3d Rich programs for example 3ds max and maya, photoshop, minecraft and more that I just can't really think of right now.

I plan on using this for literally everything I do as my current PC just can't handle it. And theres other things I do which I assume are against the rules of this forum to discuss but that too takes a lot of processing power and RAM.

Regards,
Brad

it doesnt matter either way. the i7 3770k has more than enough power to handle those tasks. the only thing that the x79 platform offers is that it has more cores, which in some tasks do not benefit from.

when building a computer, you build it for a purpose that you know you are doing, not whether in the future you will be doing. its a total waste of money if you do that. its like buying a 54 foot truck thinking that you will haul cargo but in the end, all you are doing is hauling furniture that can be done on 28 footer or even a pick up truck. lets say that my rig is a pick up truck and yours is a 54 foot beast. in the end i can do the same job as you just as effectively, but way more cost effectively

^ pretty much the worst recommendation i have seen yet but ill run through it

-the 3930k performs the same for 400 bucks less. and it overclocks the same
-motherboard is definitely overkill in every possible way
-using cheap watercooling for something that costs 6000 dollars is plain dumb
-no one ever needs that much memory. only facebook servers would need that much
-there are better drives out there that perform better and are cheaper. and if you are using 1tb of SSD storage, you are doing it wrong
-seagate 4tb is well under half the price of a WD black
-a couple of flas with the video card. 1) ghz edition cards dont perform better than the standard editions 2) there are better 7970s than the gigabyte model 3) 4way with a open cooler means you bought yourself a space heater that doesnt move air since its choking itself 4) 4way doesnt perform better than 3way CF. games cant use it properly 5) some apps like CUDA over OpenCL
-overpriced and medium quality case
-if you are spending 100 dollars for something that is dying out, you are doing it wrong
-the guy can speak english. what is the point of windows ultimate
