System 2
1 - Core i7-3770K
2 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4
3 - SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7850

System 3 (Economic)
1 - Core i7-2600k
2 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4
3 - SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7850

I'd personally pick system #2 out of all of those - you won't need the power of the 670 unless you're gaming, and the Eyefinity setup of the 7850 will make setting up multiple monitors incredibly easy.

g-unit, the GTX 670 also supports up to 4 displays, so the Eyefinity factor is somewhat moot.

However, the 7850 is a very good card to build your system around, and it can be overclocked like a champ to narrow the gap between GTX 670.

Yeah that is true - the thing is if it's not a gaming system and you're using far more CPU intensive tasks, I'd go for the better CPU than GPU myself.

but CPU in System 2 is Ivy Bridge & i think it's harder to overclock it than i7-2600k (sandy Bridgr), cuz to the high increase in the temperature

Is overclocking a necessity to this build though? Ivy Bridge doesn't nearly get as hot as a lot of people claim it does, especially with the right cooler.

I would choose system 2 as well. The 7850 is very good.

if i want to make crossfire in the future, there's one PCIe 3.0 x16 with full x16, so in this case they will convert to dual x8, is that decrease the power of them? and is therea MOBO support dual x16 to avoid that?

It's going to cost you 2-3x as much to get a mobo like that. LGA 1155 is the best socket for gaming. Besides, x8/x8 and x16/x16 has no difference, maybe a few %.

If i change Radeon HD 7850 to GTX 570 2.5GB & use Core I7-2600K, then i don't need PCIe 3.0
cuz GTX 570 & 2600K don't support PCIe 3.0
in this case what is the MOBO that has PCIe 2.0 dual x16?

X79 with soket type LGA 2011 not support Core I7-2600k, it's only support sandy bridge-E

The CPUs supported on X79 are quite a bit more powerful than the 2600K (especially the six-core i7-3930K) and can handle higher RAM capacities.
