I think I have narrowed my findings.

Intel 2600K
Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7
16GB G Skill Memory (what frequency do I need? 1600Mhz or do I go higher if I really don't plan to over clock is faster better?)
Corsair Performance 3 series SSD (been told 3 times to get this by my friends (NOT OUT YET??)) 480MB read/ 320MB write
Have Corsair 750watt power supply from friend (brand new)
Have a corsair H70 coller from friend (brand new)
Radeon HD 5870.
I just might one day overclock.............
will this work?
hi,
first of all y do u need 16 gig of ram?
y do u need an expensive top dog mobo?
y do u need 5870 when you dont game?
y even bother getting old graphic when ur getting brand spanking new intel processor that came out this month?

save money on these things and invest in something else
like:
monitor(s) since u multitask alot, perhaps get 6850 for eyefinity or get a 30 inch.
sound system since ur planning to watch movies and maybe music as well
blueray player (then again u have a ps3...)
etc

u may feel like i sound like a jackass but y spend on things you dont need?
