Do you need the i7?

If it's for gaming, get the i5..Exact same performance.

Also, just get a P8P67 Pro..No need to spend that much on a motherboard.

Get 2 hard drives and raid 0.

You can probably squeeze a SSD with that budget.

I'm sure some people will come in and help you too but I'm pretty confident with what I recommended.

My build is pretty similar to what you're planning... that looks like a fantastic build but I would agree with the points Blostorm brought up.

And definitely get a SSD.

Also, the 2500k and 2600k are the SAME chip, but the 2600k has hyperthreading available. That just makes encoding videos faster.

If you're just gaming, get the 2500k. And if you're serious about more cpu-intensive stuff, the 2600k will pale in comparison to the Sandy Bridge-E line that's coming out in a couple of months. (I plan on upgrading to the 2011 socket when it comes out... Either way, I wouldn't get the 2600k unless you're getting a deal on it).

If have a budget of 2k then I would highly recommend you to buy a SSD,
corsair force series3 120gb/corsair performence3 128gb & get a better mobo like asus p8z68v pro,a better psu like seasonic x850/x750,a cpu cooler like noctura nh d14/thermalright silver arrow.
Hope you like my suggestion.
