Its been 8 years since I built my PC. Only thing I have really done is added storage increased ram and changed GPU. I do a lot of things from create music/videos, gaming, Blu Ray 3d movies, etc. When I built my rig last time the budget was 3k looking to stick within that range, I really don't want to buy a computer every two years so it has to be futuristic. I like newegg and tiger direct unless we are talking substantially cheaper.
CPU: Intel Core2 Quad Processor Q9550 2.83 GHz (Surprisingly every game works running windows 8)
Motherboard: ASUS RAMPAGE FORMULA LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard
Memory: 8gb (it would be funny if it was a joke)
Video Card:Currently Nvidia Geforce GTX 770
Natively ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 (stayed hot Nvidia ever since)
Case: Antec 900 (To much noise and light gotten much older in 8 years)
Trying to stay in a 3k to 3.5k budget

Motherboard: ASUS ROG RAMPAGE V EXTREME (479.99)
Memory: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 64GB (8 x 8GB) 288-Pin (539.99)
This would be the first time I had so much ram. I could cut down for faster cpu or better grapics.
Willing to settle for 16 or 32 gb of ram.
Storage: Main Drive SAMSUNG PM871 M.2 256GB SATA III (140.99)
Not sure if it is compatible with MB
Its just for OS and I like to keep my main drive small and fast
Secondary Drive: WD40EZRZ (127.99)
Video Card: ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Ti (804.98)
Haven't check benchmarks. Please let me know if it is worth it.

CPU Cooler: Any Ideas
Case: No water cooling Quiet and cool can take from ram if the case is worth it
Power Supply: Thinking 1100 Watts

I always get extended warranty on GPU thinking about not getting extended warranty on CPU
I will not purchase anything from MSI have a long history of bad things with company.
Thank You for your feedback.
