The mother board will have to have an LGA 2011 socket to accomodate the CPU you listed (such as an X79). Is there any reason you chose the i7 3930K?

For a motherboard Id go for the Asus RIVE ( RAMPAGE IV EXTREME ) . Will match the color of your memory great . Black and Red . Nvm on the memory color didn't read the Platinum .

Are you going to over clock your CPU ?

I use an Asus P9X79 Pro with an I7-3930k.

It has the standard 6 Intel SATA ports (two of those are 6Gb/s, the other 4 are 3Gb/s, as is standard for an X79 board). It also has 2 more 6Gb/s SATA ports, using a Marvell controller.

ASUS - - ASUS P9X79 PRO

For the RAM, I'd suggest a quad channel kit rather than the dual channel you specified. It may not make a huge difference in practice. I gave the DDR3-2400 frequency a miss; stayed with the DDR3-2133 (GSkill F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH, from the Qualified list for the board). Supposedly the returns are rapidly diminishing above DDR3-1600. The prices rise rapidly above DDR3-2133.

Power supply? I don't own this one, but it's very popular:

HX Series HX750 Power Supply

You'd want something larger if you ever wished to add a second 7970 in Crossfire, though.

Any high end Asus motherboard for Socket 2011 will do you just fine. As for the power supply, look at the Corsair AX750 .

Should be a beast of a PC when you get it done. What do you plan on using it for?

If your going to use the 3930K I'd over clock it . The C2 stepping version of the CPU could go to 4.8 on a good water block . I've seen some on the one you're going with .

yes, i choose intel core 3930K because i need the fastest one, and i can afford intel core extreme in my country

I am going to overclock it to as much speed it can go, (i think the linit is 4.8 ghz, but i have heard some people's going beyond limit to 7.0 ghz)

you mean that i can't use the ram i said,

so guys i saw this mother board see if it's good, if it isn't just search a motherboard in the list in the online shops, because i am going to that shop straightly

I don't follow what you post, but:

The motherboard that you link to is a Z77 one. It's socket 1155, and completely incompatible with an I7-3930k (which is Socket 2011). You'll need a board with an X79 chipset for the I7-3930k.

You can use dual channel RAM with an I7-3930k. However, it supports quad channel memory, so (in principle), you'd get better performance with 4 DIMMs.

Are you sure that you wouldn't prefer to combine a board like that with an I7-3770k? It's be a high-end quad core Ivy Bridge CPU rather than a low-end 6 core Sandy Bridge E CPU. The dual channel RAM would be good for a Z77 board.

Ivy Bridge-E boards should be coming out sometime this year. IT all depends on how bad you need to build the machine. Id personally wouldn't get a board that has onboard graphic card. Id have to share the memory with the onboard device and if I want to use a graphic card for better gaming Id have to disable the onboard video. All Asus x79 LGA2011 SOCKET boards are good. If you will be doing xFIRE or SLI you would need to get a floppy power cable to plug into the motherboard of the ROG RIVE( Rampage IV Extreme ) boards .
