Awesome set up.....but are you going to be running video editing/sound editing/design programs/games simultaneously? If not....you won't need that much RAM :p

A gtx 780 ti is better than the titan on terms of gaming performance

Yes I know but I would like to have plenty because some of the programs I run aren't coded very well.

4960x isn't worth the added cost over the 4930k. You could probably nearly get another GTX 780ti for SLI with that price difference.

I'm thinking about a less fancy hard drive, maybe just a 1tb drive and have a 500gb SSD on the side. Also I might get a less fancy CPU or motherboard, also probably knock the Titan for something else. I'm hoping to mash the price down to around $3500
