I bet a lot of people are going to say this, you sure you wanna go with LGA1366 and not Sandy Bridge? Which is the same price but better performance.

This, get the Gigabyte P67 UD4, the i5 2500k/i7 2600K and 8GB of 2000mhz RAM and you'll have spent a similar amount and will have a better performing system.
