I only ask those questions due to the fact that if you do keep this system for the next 3 years, and find yourself getting into video editing, or something of that nature, that is a situation where a i7 2600K will help out a lot.

More or less I try to future proof a build, for at least a short while. & again, that is also why I had suggested a 750 watt PSU, for expandability.

Just trying to think ahead.

Edit:
I like your build ghost_z (with the 2600K)

then take the rig suggested by me....
just get the i52500k instead of i72600k and invest those additional dollars in gpu...
so get hd6970 lightning or save a bit and get gtx 580......
this will help u in gaming more than a higher performing cpu....
