Is this for gaming? Or rendering? If gaming, way overkill on the CPU, and the case is humungous. Power supply you can go with the 650W version, and the mobo is way, way too expensive. You will never use all the features on that board.

So let us know, gaming? or other uses that need more processing power?

Uhm if you're aiming for a gaming rig, the X79 platform would be a bit overkill IMO. I would go for the newer Z77 platfrom, unless if you're really a hardcore enthusiast or something. :D 

You could go for an ASUS Z77 Sabertooth for a mobo which is way cheaper than the X79 Rampage 4 Extreme, and an extremely good motherboard from all the reviews I've read. And for your CPU, you could go with the Ivy Bridge Core i7 3770K which you can easily overclock. But tbh for gaming, you don't really need hyper threading, an Ivy Bridge Core i5 3570K (which basically is an i7 with no hyper threading) would be totally fine.

Alright, i'm out! :)

Well i really wanted I7 and LGA 2011 and i didn't want to get 3930k(cost too much)

What's your reason for getting the LGA 2011? There's not that much of a noticeable difference in gaming if you go with the 1155. Unless you're going to do stuff that are heavily threaded and uses the extra memory bandwidth, 2011's not that much of an advantage from the 1155.

Hum idk why so just go with the LGA 2011 and 3820 since i already got it -.- sigh

Exactly. Worth 100$ more? Probably not to the average user.
