Here is my set up of choice;
Case: CM Storm Stryker
CPU: i7-3930K Hex-Core 3.2Ghz 12MB Cache LGA 2011
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (1x8GB) DDR3 1600MGz
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 690 4GB
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro Series 2.5” 512GB SATA 6GB/s SSD
LC: Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme
PSU: CM Silent Pro 1000W (Platinum, Gold, Silver doesn't matter to me)

Two things also will be taking up a PCIe slots:
Video Capture Card: Avermedia C985 Live Gamer HD 1080p (I simply just want this)
HooToo Internal Universal Flash Card reader (Need it and don’t want an external one)

:D 

The big question here if it wasn’t already obvious what would you say is my best MOBO option for the current set up please be kind any facts or advice would be helpful and appreciated thanks peeps? I may actually consider a 2nd GTX 690 in the future depending on how and where things go with what I plan on doing with this PC it will not be just gaming just an FYI! This is why I ask I need like 4 PCIe slots minimum and if I'm not mistaken that's the current max so yea not as savvy with the MOBO world. What's out there for me? Also inform me if my set up is good enough for that GTX 690 I don't want to bottleneck it either since it does have a dual GPU?

Thanks a ton when you say pricey roughly how much price only matters in a time basis so basically everything 1K the PC costs takes me a month to save for?

Yea so this MOBO having 4 PCIe slots makes it Quad SLI ready correct it doesn't need to say that if its 4-way right?

yea cause 2 GTX 690's in the future will be like running 4-way with those dual GPU's in them so just making sure.
One question about it though does this have wireless/bluetooth capabilities built into it or should I need to get a wireless card as well?
