    You don't want the i7 3930k. There is no reason to have anything more than an i7-3770K in a gaming computer. The 3930K doesn't offer any more benefits that a 3770K in terms of gaming, and costs hundreds more.

    The GTX 670 is a fantastic card, but instead of getting 2 of them (costing nearly $800), get a single GTX 780 ($650), which will run at about the same performance, and have less compatibility issues with certain games.

    Unless the 670s both have 4GB GDDR5, is is best to get a 780.

    The 1500W power supply is completely unnecessary. Maybe if you were going to SLI 4 graphics cards, it would make sense, but you really only need 1250W max.

    Other than this, your build is excellent. Making the changes that I suggest will save about $300 without losing performance.

    The parts that you have chosen will work gret together.

    That being said, if you are building your PC manly for gaming, I would look more towards the Haswell CPU, may consider getting the i5-4670k.The only reason I am bring this to your attention is that 6 cores and hyper-threading will not benefit you in almost all PC games on the market, as they do not support hyper-threading what so every and most games are optimized for 4 cores on the Intel side.

    If you want to save money or put the extra you would have spent on the X79 platform, towards a more higher GPU or run a multi GPU setup, that will help you alot more in games then the X79 chip-set and motherboard.

    It's cool if you go with the X79 enthusiast platform if you want to, I even have one myself, but just know that you will not gain any performance boost over the 4670k in gaming.

    You might also want to look at this… Intel has a great promotional deal going on right at the moment on Haswell CPU's.

    Hope this helped you,

    Yeah, everything looks compatible, have fun. Since budget doesn't seem to be a problem, perhaps make the GTX 670s into 770s, or a titan or two.

    It looks good, though i might assess 2 things. 1. Double assess to make certain the CPU socket is the identical as the mother boards. 2. Check one of a kind power supplies for a greater wattage maybe go as much as 800-850 watts alternatively of 650. Hope this helps! Just right good fortune!
