But on a serious note you dont need socket 2011 or 3960x to max out games to be blunt the only thing extreme about that is the extreme amount people will laugh at you when you try to show it off to anyone with some knowledge

You can spend that $3200 on that stuff but some guy running a socket 1155 i5 or i7 and a pair of GTX670 is gaming just as well as you with more money left in his bank

Even in the near future having a Socket 2011 CPU isn't going to make a difference. By the time it would have, newer architecture would've hit the streets and blown your 2011 out of the sky.

Yeah, realistically you dont need that i7 processor and i5 would do just fine.

I'd still keep the GPU, power supply, motherboard (can be changed depending on your actual needs), the case once again preference. Umm... the memory again can be changed, you dont need more than 16GB's though. The storage can be changed again, the SSD is pretty nice however, and a 10000rpm HDD would be hella fast.

Get 2 680's over the 690 that way when you have things that have issue with SLi you can revert to the single card
