If I were going to build a system today, I would use:
images/bd10265.gif Joe Whinery's List of Excel Spread Sheet - PC Build Specs: (Compare Prior Build Specs).

Trade Station System Optimized For Power & Performance - Intel X79 Chipset & LGA 2011 Socket

Please Note: Due to the current short life cycles of Chip Sets and GPUs (from 3 to 6 months), Motherboards and Graphics cards are going obsolete quicker than I can evaluate the new crop. The same thing is happening to DVD-RW drives. Therefore, don't be surprised if your supplier suggests a different part number for some recommended device. Check the specs and it they are the same or very similar, run with it.
