or
G.Skill 1600MHz with 9-9-9-24

Also why i7 2600k if this is just for gaming and regular use get the i5 2500k?
Though if your using it for Video editing or anything that takes benefit from hyper threading go with the i7 2600k

And yes a 850w will be enough you could even get a 750w

May I offer a compromise to both of those RAM kits? biggrin.gif

GSkill 1600 with 8-8-8-24, 1.50v

Just ordered those myself, can't wait to toy with them. smile.gif I've got the 9-9-9-24 stuff currently (4x2GB), so I'll torture 2200-2300MHz out of these hopefully. smile.gif

I agree with everything else you said though. There's honestly no reason to spend extra money on overkill stuff that will NEVER be used. wink.gif

I have these myself, they're pretty good at CL8 1600MHz. If you're going with the WS revolution or the p8p67 pro, these will match you board color wise.
