You have a 2011 board and 1155 CPU, incompatible.

What kind of rig is it? Looks like an extreme gaming rig, though that is strange considering your using a 580 instead of say dual 680's or 7970's.

Also on a rig like this, only a pre-built liquid cooler? Should go full out on at least a low end custom kit.

I don't know much about liquid cooling, kind of just threw that in there thinking it might be useful. Any better suggestions I should take a look at? I have been playing BF3 on Ultra Settings with the 580, so I guess I didn't see any reason not to just keep that card, but you're right, I could up that to a few 690's or something in SLI.

This is going to be used for gaming, development, virtual servers, graphic design, video editing, and 3D modeling/printing.

The mobo isn't compatible. I am betting you don't want to get what that socket type has. They are super expensive.
I would get this one

I think that will do everything you need it to.
Also, since I assume this is a gaming build, I would get this cpu

Also the 580 is super overpriced.
The 7870 is more powerful and lower price and so is the 7950.

Good find on that CPU, I must have overlooked that, much appreciated!

I think I will replace with this:

Intel Core i7-3930K Hexa-Core Processor 3.2 Ghz 12 MB Cache LGA 2011

Also, the reason I put the 580 card in there is that I already own it, so that's a freebie on the new build.

never mind about the i5 then, get an i7.

Do you do editing for more than 6 hours a day? If not you won't notice any difference with that cpu. Those things are barely anymore powerful in practice. the only reason those cpus should be used for is professional purposes.

If you aren't a professional that is the strongest I would get.

I just want to make sure that if I build this now, that it will at least support what I do for maybe 2-3 years, so I am trying to put together the best machine.

Also for future reference get a list that you already have something. And again, are you a professional?!?!?

I am a professional web developer, not a systems builder...sorry about the omission on the 580 card, that I already had it.

I do use the system for heavy video rendering at times and 3D Rendering as well.

That's fine. Well if you are doing design for more than 5 or 6 hours a day, then that 5-10% extra speed means more income. So, yeah I think you should go with it, it will pay for itself in few months tops.
