Normally, I'd say Socket 2011 is overkill, and suggest a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H, Core i5 3570K (Or maybe i7 3770K if you really want that small increase in performance), and a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo CPU cooler. Being a high end graphics/animation design rig, though, maybe you could take advantage of the extra performance. I would definitely not worry about 7 Ultimate, though. Windows 7 Pro should do you fine. The only difference is Bitlocker, which few people use.
No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards!

Main PC: Core i7 3770K 3.5GHz, Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP, 8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600, 240GB Intel 335 Series SSD, 750GB WD HDD, Sony Optiarc DVD RW, Palit nVidia GTX660 Ti, CoolerMaster N200 Case, Delta DPS-600MB 600W PSU, Hauppauge TV Tuner, Windows 7 Home Premium.
