Haha. No, no.

Points:

1. 2600k, not 2500k. That's another 100$.
2. 8GB of RAM; another 35$.
3. Three HD 6950's instead of two GTX 580's. That's about 150$ less.
4. At least one 3TB HDD. Definitely not 1TB.

Well he doesn't need two GTX 580s, and i only listed one and stated i would SLI "eventually".

OP never mentioned 8GB RAM and the 2500k is enough for gaming but if he really wants the 2600k then maybe a cheaper case and a 650W PSU and everything would fit in his budget.

If you plan on SLI then buy the PSU you need now rather than later.

What?

No.

Especially on your third and fourth point. Just no.

Also, I hope you do some serious designing or use some heavy development suites. You have 32GB of RAM, and that's ridiculous. Most people never use more than 4GB. More memory than you are using is a bad thing, not a good thing. It can also hurt your overclock. It's one of the rare moments where overkill in our world is a bad thing.

Quite sure when both are overclocked to their peaks using the same cooling the gap wouldn't exist between them.

EDIT:

Using 32GB of RAM, as said earlier, does nothing but harm your overclock. If you are going to spend that much on RAM, where is your 980X? The 980X is by far better than a 2600K, and it seems like money is no object for you.

What do you even use that for? The 32GB of RAM tells me it has something to do with animation or something, and then I look at the tri-sli and realise that you play games.

Do you think that Metro 2033 will look better and run faster with pointless amounts of video power and overly exessive amounts of RAM? Can you even max it out at over 50FPS?

Or did you just spend $6,000+ so you can benchmark and show off to people that don't care.
