i like that first one for the 2600k you posted, i think ill go for that instead as i am going for mostly performance in games, but im starting to work with cad alot also but i couldnt go wrong with either chip now could i?

To be honest your X6 system should consume no more than 450W. So if you want headroom I'd say 750W is more than enough.

For data drive either go with

* SSD 64 GB + HDD
* 2 HDDs. You can put them in RAID 0 for increase performance.

2600K does not improve gaming much (I have heard it hurts some games having hyperthreading on?)

A 2500K would truthfully do you just fine. Newegg has the 2500K and an ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z for $370.

But as mentioned, if your looking at Feb for this build, a lot will change by then. The 7000 series cards will be out, Ivy Bridge will almost be out, so you never know what prices may do and exactly how the new components will perform.

If your budget around 1.5k, here the system I would recommend you
CPU
i7 2600K

Motherboard
ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3

RAM
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600

Graphics card
2x MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II

PSU - (650Watt is enough for SLI)
CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX650

HDD
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB

CASE
Corsair 600t Black Case

Cooler
CORSAIR H100

SSD
Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA II

TOTAL $1,496.91

also here is some good SSD so you can choose for, I would recommend for 120gb SSD. I got 64gb ssd but not seen much difference tho

i can turn off the hyperthreading though cant i? last intel proc i had was a pentium dual core...and before that a pentium 3...pretty much if i was to build now off a 2600k and two 560s id be future proofed for sure

in terms of the psu im gonna get one somewhere between 750 and 850w as im gonna be adding an LC loop which i know wont drain too much, as well as lights and all that extra fun stuff,

If I were you, with a complete new build, I'd go with the 2600K combo. I just built my system but to save money (which now I deeply regret) I went with an AMD. Now, my setup will prob end up on Ebay because I am seriously considering switching to the 2600K with ASUS Sabertooth P67. As for the power supply, yes that is overkill. I did a lot of research before I bought my power supply and 850 will give you that headroom you need for future upgrades.

that really sucks about your build, hopefully you can get a good price for it

Okay mate, here's some more suggestions; if you really want to be able to Crossfire you're cards then get an 850W PSU which will let you get away with almost any 2-card setup. If not then just stick to a 750W. Also those Hybrid drives aren't very good. Best you just get a 60GB SSD for a boot drive and a 1TB drive for storage. Also, hyperthreading doesn't hurt gaming performance (it's a myth, nothing more) but it doesn't exactly help either. Hopefully we'll see some games that can take advantage of it soon.

Also, Ivy Bridge and the 7xxx Radeon series are rumoured to come out soon. Waiting is up to you but I know what I would do.

well if your going team blue, id recommend the i5 2500k. it should do you just fine. as far as hyperthreading goes, game manufacturers probably wont include hyperthreading support because we all know amd doesnt have it and since most game manufacturers figure amd is where people game you cant just support it because 1 company has it and another doesnt. that being said, from all that ive read on benchmarking sites games are becoming multicore threaded so the more cores you have the better. the i5-2500k is a quad thats plenty quick, that being said you can grab 1090ts for around $160-170 and they overclock great and its always cool to say yea i have 6 cores. id recommend either the i5 or the x6 1090t. i would also concur that a 750 watt psu thats sli certified would be more then enough to run almost any 2 nvidia gpus. i'm unsure of how much neons and a great watercooling system suck up in power though so maybe an 800 watt psu would be a better safety net? either way, have fun with your new build.
