What will you be using it for? 2600k is only worth it over 2500k if you're doing tasks that can utilize multiple threads/cores.

what mobo? what are you going to do with it? I would perhaps look into a sata III HDD for faster transfer speeds, or even a SSD if you enjoy short boot times.

i would go a small SSD drive (crucial are decent) then for booting your OS and games, like a 128 Sata III, then another 1TB HDD (i prefer WD caviar black 7200 rpm, sata III)or so for your extra files (media, etc.)

still need to see which mobo you are thinking about

200 dollars for loading games faster seems like a waste to me :l.

But is this system good?

I'd recommend this mobo : GA-P67A-UD5-B3
On the UD3R version of this board ( which costs less ) the SATA port placement is crappy , but this bard is sure to give you , 24/7 stable overclocks .

And this cooler : ZALMAN CNPS10X FLEX
I got this cooler and its better than my Thermalright Ultra 120 . With this version you have to get 1 or 2 fans ( clips are provided for 2x fans ) , whereas with the Performa version you get 1 fan .

Then there's absolutely no point in getting the 2600k. Save the money and get the 2500k.
