Is this graphics card not a good match with this cpu as a gaming rig/work station at 1440p or 4k red?

Are you serious?

Lol why did you pick a SSD and a Hybrid drive? Seems like a waste of money.

 

And yes if you are willing to spend that much this will be a very capable pc.

I'm sorry I posted the wrong build. It's this one: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ZkGDvK

Unless you're using a lot of the PCI-E lanes now and in the future, the 5820k is a better buy.

Why go the e5 route?

I was going to go with the i7 5930k but this e5 is only $20 more so I was like screw it might as well.. But I just want a future proof processor just in case I decide to upgrade my graphics cards in a year or so. Do you think this is a good idea? I'll probably add another 980 ti oc but not soon.

If your primary use for the machine is gaming I would not choose a Xeon

Higher price =/= better CPU. They're both effectively the same chip with the major differences being that the 5930k can be overclocked and the Xeon supports ECC memory (which doesn't matter unless you've got a server). I'd take the 5930k even if it were more expensive than the Xeon. With the consumer grade CPU's the Xeon's lack iGPU's and are not overclockable but they are a fair bit cheaper hence it can make sense in that range but with these two CPU's choosing the Xeon makes no sense whatsoever.

 

Edit: Good to see that you've decided on the 5930k :)
