Yeah save the money you'll spend on 16gb of ram and get 2x4gb set (8gb) and get faster speed timing like 2000mhz or 1866mhz. Plus corsair vengeance feel cheap the Heatsinks are horrible I don't know if they even work. I love my Corsair Dominator GTs but ripjaw x were my 2nd choice.

Do you need the 4 extra threads the 2600k has over the 2500k? If it is just for gaming, there is barely any performance loss with the 2500k and you can spend the extra money on something else that will affect it more. As for sound card, first off, do you have headphones or speakers, and if so what kind. Also, will you want you sound to be more musically or more game oriented?

I would get a Z68 chipset and use SSD caching. Installing Windows on your SSD and managing your data between it and your mechanical drives is simply a pain, and Z68 fixes it. I've done 3 setups like this manually and I don't think I'm going to do it again.

The good thing is if I get one GTX 580 now I can still pick one more up along the way at a cheaper price (i'm thinking 3-6 months later).

Wouldn't 8gbx2 dual-channel be better than 1 8gb dual-channel? Just wondering.
Get 2x4gb.
There is no real difference between 2500K and 2600K in games. Paying more for 2600K is only worth it if you use applications that can make full use of 8 threads.

AeroHawk, the ASUS P67 Deluxe has a really good soundcard onboard so I would stay with that and save some money.

Get some 1600 MHZ Ripjaws X instead. I doubt you would ever need 16 GB of ram.
Start out with 8GB and buy another 8GB kit later on if you feel the need.

Get a 580 if you have the money or just get a 560 ti best bang for the buck and sli them since they out perform a single 580 while they cost less than a single 580 as well.
Now you say you will do a future 580 SLI why not just wait around till 4Q this year or 1Q 2012 to get NVIDIA 560 Series also known as the kepler. http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/8958...fo-thread.html
You still be able to go with the 560 ti SLI cause the cost less than a 580.

Get Noctua NH-D14 or Thermaltake Silver Arrow or Corsair H80 if you want something with a bit more options.

Either go with Corsair 850AX or Seasonic X850. Both gold 80 plus both based on Seasonic X design though I believe the Corsair just skimped on the fan. They both run extremely silent.

I would suggest go read reviews about all the things.

Why would you go with a non modular power supply?
Deluxe > Sabertooth.
The Crucial m4 is better than what Kingston has to offer.

I'd still go with the GeForce 560 Ti and sli it if you really want SLI but I'd wait for the 600 series anyway.
Also as some mention go with the Intel 2500k.
Less heat, better overclock.

If you will be doing a variety of things with the rig, including graphic design and rendering then yes the 2600k will be the better option. Nothing wrong with the 2500k but the extra threads will come in handy.

Memory wise, 8gigs should be fine for most applications, unless again you will be doing heavy rendering and graphics work in which case the 16gigs will suit you far better. You will have to sit down and assess just how heavy a load you will be putting on the machine to determine if you truly need 8 or 16 gigs.

The GTX580 is a solid performer and you would do well with it.
Definately look at changing out the PSU for a modular version, it will be a few dollars more but well worth it.

Also look into the Corsair H80 as a CPU heat sink. If you are looking for a cool running yet relatively silent system you would do well with it.
Or the Antec Kuhler 920 I believe. I know the 2 units bench about 1 degree apart so both are good units and quiet.

All in all, look at your total budget and buy the best possible components that will fit in that budget.

The board I would consider swapping it down to the P8P67 Pro as opposed to the Deluxe, only thing you would lose really is the front panel USB 3.0 Module, but the Pro does have the headers for it so if the case supports front usb3 you can easily make use of those.

I read in some reviews which show a comparison b\\w m4 and c300 that apparently the c300 is better at random writing\
eading as compared to m4. However the case is the opposite when it comes to sequential reading\\writing. I will post some links in a while.
Random reading\\writing is what helps windows work quickly.

you should switch out your ram for 8gb and get 1600mhz rather than 1333mhz...

8gb is MORE than anough

EDIT: Nevermind someone beat me too it
