  1. x79!
  2. Asus Rampage IV Extreme Intel X79 with Asus GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP x3!!!
  3. +1 The Asus CU II, they look and perform great. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y08UUHMy9p8

    As far as the motherboard the X79 are very overpriced. And a couple of the brand new Z77 boards just realeased with the PCI-E PLX chip with 4-way SLI/CF compatability. The Gigabyte Z77 G1 Sniper 3 is definitely the best bang for the buck. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128552
  4. X79, the extra memory bandwidth will help a lot!

    Actually only about 2% performance gains when comparing 680s in PCI-E 3.0 x8 vs x16. So 100fps would be 102fps in x16. But the new PLX chips can also do 3.0 x16/x16, or x8/x8/x8/x8 http://i1161.photobucket.com/albums/q508/swolern/680pcie23.png
