I would like nothing more then to put a 8 core CPU in my Motherboard....not going to happen, so don't expect that its just how things are.
Motherboard: Should be reliable and use a socket type that will continue to be used years in the future. I also want an optical audio output to connect to my surround sound.

I would highly recomend this cooler: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835181015
I just got it yesterday and it is silent! Very easy to install too.
For $2700 worth of computer, don't go 1155 socket. The 2011 socket has much higher performance from their chips with extra core's to boot.
Six core i7 3930
MSI Motherboard with Quad channel memory up to 128 GB of DDR 3 3000 Mhz. and the X79 chipset.
For $2750 you could get an i7-3970x and the Nvidia Titan when it releases.
An i7 3770K and a GTX 680 is a much more reasonable choice.
for $2750 you can pretty much buy all the best stuff. i'd go with a intel or crucial for the ssd due to the reliability. and a corsair psu. for $2700 though you can waste a lot of money on buying the latest and greatest, getting second best saves a lot and is usually nearly as good. evga vid cards have a great warranty and step up program. 16gigs of ram is overkill, unless you need it. if you have money to blow why not. since you've been buying macs, I guess you do, lol.
also I'd probably put win7 on it. I have 8 on my tablet and its made for that. I don't see any reason to put it on my desktop.

That's probably what I want, a 3770K and a GTX 670 or 680. Is the 680 fast enough to play games on the max settings right now? How long do you think it'll last in the future with the new consoles coming out?

I was looking at that one too. How often do you have to put water in there?
