Since you are only gaming an i5 2500k is perfect. Everything else is good too, what about the case?

And SRT is ok, do it if you like, I haven't researched into it much myself.

i would really like a ssf, but i'm worried about heat issues with my crossfire setup. i have an extra p180 mini...but its not really a small case. is there any ssf case's out there that wpould allow a xfire setup and pretty long cards?
i'm just now reseaching the srt setup. from what i've read so far it would be perfect for me. i don't use alot of stuff, mostly gaming.

I'm not really sure on the small cases, maybe someone else can help you with that.

I've been looking and can't find many...

Definitely get a 2500k if it is just for gaming. Best bang for your buck right now.

Everything looks great and welcome to the good side of things =D
