CPU: i7-3930k
Motherboard: Asus P9X79 Pro or Deluxe
Ram: 2133MHz Ram (Gskill makes a nice 32GB kit 8x4GB)
or you could go with 64GB of 1600MHz, Corsair makes a nice kit.
Water cooling - Corsair H80 or H100 if you can fit it.
Get two 120mm variable speed fans to replae the stock ones. you will also need a 4 pin Y splitter for the fan cable.
Graphics card: whatever you want, not important.
PSU: 550W, higher if you are getting a performance graphics card.
Intel SSD as boot drive
Large 2-3TB HDD for storage
cheap cd or dvd or blu-ray drive
Whatever case you like.
