What I've got so far http://pcpartpicker.com/p/JJV3K8, I am under $9000 and my wattage is nearly at PSU capacity.

 

Any suggestions for $6000 worth of stuff that won't tax the PSU.

went with a more expensive CPU - 18 core Xeon, and more RAM, plus some extras. Technically, this build could draw more wattage than PSU is rated for, but I think it would be all right.
