Get an i5 2500k. Will whoop the arses of both the i7-950 and the even the 1100T.
A Sandy Bridge build with even a decent mobo will rape all other offerings. I wish Intel had released SB 3 months ago when I built this rig.
It makes me sad panda that my i7 is now slow compared to the new gen.
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
