It makes me sad panda that my i7 is now slow compared to the new gen.
Will I wouldn't say rape the 950 but gives it a good mean look but yeah a SB build will save you money and offer amazing performance.
The 950 is still about 85 USD more than the standard i5-2500k (Thank you Microcenter for the discount )
I'm not sure about the prices where you are but definetely check the price on it plus the mobo

@Edit I second the notion of dropping the SSD for just a 7200RPM with decent storage or at least a cheap 40gig. You then put that money into other components where it matters first

The i5-2500k is 180 at MC near me while the i7-2600k is 280.

It's really a tossup on which to get. I think I'll wait till Ivy bridge.

Much better choice by going with Corsair Power Supply. I'm totally done with OCZ. My last build I had to RMA more OCZ gear than I wish to mention... Ultimately, it made me end up scrapping the damn computer altogether from just being mentally worn out from it. OCZ RAM and OCZ Power-supply = suicide.

I see nothing wrong with the G.Skill memory despite what someone else said, I've used them in a few builds and they tend to be quality modules for a modest price. Many pro review sites agree... Although, if overclocking I'd opt for the PC3-12800 (1600mhz) variety or faster, plus you can take advantage of the Intel XMP profiles.

Beautiful. Just keep in mind you won't have two x16 PCI-e lanes when in dual card with that board. From what I've heard x8 is usually enough bandwidth for good performance.

You'll see a good performance from that setup with plenty of untapped potential. Go for it!

Actually. Instead of that video card I would suggest this one.

The TwinFrozrII will keep your card nice and cool even during the most frantic firefights.

how about this now?

Intel Core i5 2500K
Asrock P67 Professional Fatal1ty
Segate Barracuda 1TB
8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 2x4GB
MSI GTX 460 Hawk or GTX 560
XFX Core Edition Pro 750W

also is there a difference between the i7 2600k and the i5 2500k other than the .1ghz speed and the naming?

An XFX power supply? I can count atleast 2 cases where I've seen threads on OCN of that same PSU shorting out and killing everything, then to stomp that out the manufacturer wouldn't even replace the PSU.
