For gaming the 2500k is best, the only difference in the chips is hyper threading, games don't get much of a boost from ht since they can barely utilize four cores as it is

2500k is good enough for gaming, a 2600k has hyper threading, which only matters in apps like Photoshop/Autocad which people like me use alot.

Asrock Extreme3 Dang good mobo for the price.
It provides options for SLI/CFX, And the Gen3 means that you can put in the Ivy Bridge CPUs which are coming out next year and take advantage of the new technology PCI-e 3.0, so it would be more "ready-for-the-future" than other boards.

Yes, SLI means getting 2 of the same cards with the same GPUs (Graphics Processing Unit) can be different brand, cooler, Vram, stock clocks. So,as long as its another GTX 460, you can SLI it.

haha you have the exact same gtx 460 as me! I can play bf3 just fine on my sig rig... but if you got's the dough then sli that bad boy!

as far as the mb/cpu goes +1 for the Asrock extreme3 g3 w/ 2500k... that's the exact combo I'm going to be getting this fall sometime whenever my current stuff sells lol (though I may end up going extreme4 g3).

Just another GTX 460, a motherboard that supports it (all the p67 boards should), an SLI bridge(which should come with your new motherboard), and probably at least a quality 650w PSU, preferably a little higher wattage 700-800w to support future upgrades/overclocking.

What PSU do you have currently? Also, if you fill in your system info in the User Control Panel, it makes it a lot easier for other members to see what you are working with.

[edit]
Oh, and 2 gtx460's in SLI is slightly faster than a gtx580 IIRC. Only thing to note is you'll still be limited to 1gb vram. Have 2 is SLI doesn't increase the amount of vram available.

[edit]
Here's an article comparing gtx460 sli vs gtx580, they basically trade blows in most games, so performance should be similar in many games.

Yeah, no. Don't use that in your new rig. Get a quality Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, or PC P&C PSU and you'll be glad you did.
