What if the cpu i was referring is an i7 980x and the gpu i was referring to is an Asus Ares (basically a HD 5870 x2). Both is free and the asus ares isn't limited anymore. But you can only have 1 choice.

Both would be an absolute waste for me. Usually at the upper end you pay a premium to just have the fastest...even if it's only a bit faster than the others and ultimately will be slower than something which comes out new which is cheaper.

In that instance if your main function with your PC is CPU intensive which means RAM intensive and hard drive then I'd go with the CPU, RAM and an SSD drive for the OS and SATA HDD for programs. If the intensity of what you need is graphic intensive then the GPU's, RAM and again SSD Hdd combo, just my $.015 worth.
