Just bought my 3930k and ordered my new ASRock x79 Extreme 11. I currently have a single 7870 Windforce. I also just ordered some G.Skill Ripjaw Z series 2133 16gb kit and an H100i cooler. I have an OCZ Agility 3 240gb and am enclosing it all in an HAF 932. As for monitors I have 2x 1920 x 1080 monitors and plan to do 3 2560 x 1600 for surround gaming, but that is not for 1+ years.

I'd probably keep what you have for the time being.

Current GPUs aren't even powerful enough to run triple 2560x1600 monitors.

Thanks for the advice, I have been really on the fence. I will probably just upgrade my accessories for the time being then, thanks mate
