Thanks for trying! Maybe that is the issue.
ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE $269.99
not much on the esata side. But you do get a lot of USB 3.0, mix with some USB 2.0.
You could download the mainboard manual:
Looks like there is 1 Front_USB 3.0 header(on the right.) and 2 Front_USB 2.0(at the bottom.)
Intel Core i7-3770K $319.99
Intel Core i5-3570K $219.99
Since you said the software he use is heavy "multithreaded". I would vote for i7. But does the software support AMD Stream or Nvidia CUDA?

I'm not sure does his software use alot of ram.. I was leaning towards:
G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9Q-32GSR
Sound Card? I guess we stick with on-board?? Realtek ALC898
Case? I guess you pick.
Video Card? AMD or Nvidia? or stick with CPU Intel® HD Graphics 4000, which is both use on the i5-3570k and i7-3770k
