Also, Allikat, fellow brony, hell yeah! This community is now officially awesome, I'll be putting up my avatar tomorrow.
The 2500K overclocked to 4,5 GHz on stock cooler gives you a pretty awesome speed boost for free.
I'd also recommend it.

You should go for a 22" 1680x1050 monitor, they are cheap now and the 260 can power it.

Next go for GTX 560 Ti and a 24" 1080p screen.

The rest of your picks look good.

Okay, one more question: what's the cheapest P67 board? I know I sound like a cheapskate, but if I can manage the whole bundle at about 250 pounds it'd be great. Also because the price will seem less threatening to my parents (I'm paying for it, but I'm not sure if they'll let me spend that much cash).
