I basically have the option of either the mid-end X79+high end i7-3930k or the high end Z77 mobo plus the i7-3770k processor. Which do you reccomend?

My focus is gaming, however i'm getting a big discount on both these items from Intel employee purchase program, so I might as well go for a high end one rather than the i5.

It depends on what your main usage for the pc will be.

For multi core enabled apps like video rendering/editing, then the 6 core 3930K is very good albeit expensive.

For gaming, the 3570K is equally good, but a lot less expensive.
That allows you more budget for a very strong graphics card.
