I'm working on my shopping list for a new build and was wonder what everyone thought is the best route to go for gaming.

i7-3930k
Asus P9x79 Deluxe
Crucial M4 256GB SATA3 SSD
16GB GSKILL Ripjaw

I am leaning towards 2 MSI GTX580 Lightning XE 3GB.

Thanks in advance.

30" monitor running at 2560x1600 at the moment. I may try a 3d setup in the future.

Looks like a great build. I haven't seen a review of the i7-3930k yet, but if it's similar to the 3960x it will handle 2x 580's beautifully. You will need a hefty power supply to handle your system, especially if you plan on OCing everything. I would recommend something that gives you a little headroom such as http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I already have a thermaltake toughpower 1200w that I plan on using. Is it worth the money for 2x GTX590s?

The i7-3930K is much more expensive compared to i7-2600K or i5-2500K with the same performance in gaming.

Yeah a 1200w will be plenty for 2x 590s.
