Ive been doing some calculation and think this is actually a pretty good deal.
I have already upgraded my Q6700 for a X5460, netting a good boost and sold the Q6700 for as much as I paid for the X5460+adapter + shipping. So that's a 0$ upgrade in total.
Here, suppose I buy the Kit + a video card ( the same I already have and put both them In SLI )
-Kit : 450$
-Asus ENGTX 460 video card. : 80$ ( based on ebay )
-Corsair H60 : 65$
Then sell the following : ( based on ebay price )
-Q9650 : 175$
-Asus P5q : 50$
-Geforce 560Ti : 120$
-Kingston HyperX 1066 ddr2 4x2gb : 90$
-Ocz stealth xtreme 600w Psu modded with silent noctua fan. : 30$
-Big air cooler : 20$
Minus 40$ ebay fees.
So In total It cost me 150$
I now have 8gb DDR3 instead of DDR2, a badass PSU of double the power, in a totally ludicrous Case originally worth over 300$, with bottom space for PSU, a SLI video card setup that performs close to 700 series, a H60 liquid cooling, Dual 1.5 TB Hard drives (Raid!), a Sound card and a interesting motherboard to play with.
Not to mention that I need DDR3 and bigger PSU for when I buy a new motherboard + CPU and can keep using the H60 so that stuff is not wasted.
When I want to upgrade later on I will likely only have to buy Mobo and CPU, which will make the whole deal pretty trivial. I can Upgrade Ram and GPU anytime I like. Then, say one year from now, I can still sell the Motherboard + CPU for a decent sum.
Edit: Added details and corrected calculation.
