Intel i7 950 $315 dont know exact price yet.
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 $315
Patriot Viper2 6gb 2000mhz RAM $160
Patriot Inferno SSD 60gb $135
Seagate 1TB HDD $61
Thermaltake V9 $97
XFX 650 proseries $122 Windows
7 Professional Retail Version $110, ebay
Graphics card: AMD 6950 $370.

Any alternate suggestions?

Would this be beaten by a i7 2600?

The UD5 is a socket 1136 Motherboard and the i7 2600 a 1155 CPU so they wont fit/work together.

No worries mate, I had to double check lol.

Have a look at something like the Gigabyte P67A-UD3R, there is a discussion somewhere about the boards, let me see if I can find the link.

To behonest i might just go with LGA 1366, the prices should drop a bit after SB, and its not like the 950 is a bad performer.
