I would wait and watch the reports back on the Z97 boards coming soon and by taking the voltage control off the Haswell chip it could be a much better overclocker.....we'll see.

Looks like some work ahead Ryan, don't try to push the Haswell as fay as Ivy, unless you have a dry ice cooler. I've heard good things about that board.

Only hardware, I'm still happy with my case etc. Thank you.
It depends on which way you want to go. Ivy E is the last one out But, the improvements over what you already have is not that great form what I've heard. They are still socket 2011.

On the other side is Haswell and the i7-4770K From what I see, there are some nice improvements in the Chipsets, but the CPU's don't overclock quite as well and the heat is a very limiting factor.

For Graphics and you said Nvidia, the 780s have really come down in price because of the new AMD releases. They released the 780 TI since the AMD release. The 780TI are still pretty new but seem to out perform everything else, but the price is quite high. Not as bad as The Titan, but still close to it.

With your rig, I don't see anything out worth upgrading for really unless you wanted to upgrade your GPU to a 780 or 780 TI. I think that would show a lot of improvement over your 580s. But Nvidia was supposed to release the 800 series the 1st quarter this year. We'll have to wait to see what they are about.

If you have any specific questions, ask away.

Socket 2011 still has more PCI-e lanes available for those who need them. I've been lusting after the new Asus X79 Deluxe MOBO but I just can't justify the expense so soon after spending the equivalent of the GNP of many small countries on my present rig.

Six cores of delight! I'm so spoiled by my 3930K. Along with 32GB RAM, I can run full scans with AVAST, MBAM, SAS, and Spybot S&D simultaneously without the computer breaking a sweat. Even with the SSD and 16GB RAM I put in my notebook, it is such a drag to run my scans on it because of the two core I3 it sports. Fortunately, I use only for trips so I let it set in its drawer until a week before I hit the road, then dig it out and spend an evening updating everything.
