What brand is the power supply? I recommend antec, ocz, or corsair. Microcenter has the 3820 for $200 with combo discounts available with most cpu purchases. Otherwise, I would go with the 3570 ivy bridge and a z77 motherboard.

There is no need going to the X79 socket if you are just using the i7 3820. The i7 3770 performs much better & the combined cost of the i7 3770+Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 ($455) is much less than the combined cost of the i7 3820+Asrock X79 Extreme 4 ($525) while the i7 3770 performs better:

It is only worthwhile getting the X79 over the Z77 socket if you are getting the i7 3930X.

+1 above comments.

It's a good system, but you can get better bang for your buck by going with an Ivybridge-based system.

i say go with a smaller than 2TB drive and try to implement some SSD in your life bro.. you cant go wrong.. even if you can find a cheap 30-60GB SSD.. the performance benefits of having it as a boot drive are pretty great..
