If you're just going to play games there's no need to get an i7.

That Asus X58 motherboard is not compatible with i5-2500k (sandy bridge). X58 motherboards are socket 1366. Make sure you get something called P67 with socket 1155.

You may have to wait a few weeks for more P67 motherboards come out.

Ah you need a monitor and Windows 7? Fixed my recommendations.
The only difference between the HAF 932 and HAF X is the inside of the X is painted and it has a couple different front ports. And I would never buy a PSU that comes with a case unless it's a combo deal.

The Seagate Barracuda is more expensive and slower than the Spinpoint F3.

I'm not a big fan of PowerColor and most if not all, 6950s can unlock to a 6970. Also, the XFX card I posted has a lifetime warranty.

Not enough information on that RAM but it probably has a Cas Latency of 9 running at 1.5V+ and only runs at 1333MHz.

X58 motherboards are socket 1366 so the Sandy Bridge CPUs won't fit. Every Sandy Bridge CPU is LGA 1155.

For longevity's sake, I think there is a good reason to. There aren't a ton of games that utilize all the power of an I7 right now but the system oughta last quite a while and eventually, all 8 threads will probably be used.

You could get an I5-2500K though if you want to save $100. You'll get similar performance and I'd argue it's better as far as price/performance goes.

Hyperthreading is a very situational. Utilize all the power? There's not much difference unless you specifically do encoding or have another piece of software that uses it.

I'd spend that $100 on the GPU, you'll see much bigger gains there.

To killingthesilence..

I'm cool with buying the 6970 even if it's a little more just for the safety that a 6950 might not unlock. Yeah I need a monitor and windows 7 and everything. Man that sucks about the fixed motherboards taking a few weeks I don't want to wait that long if possible. I'm really anxious about getting it.Haf x or Haf 932 is good either way I'm not too concerned about the case. I'll consider getting the seperate psu.Again to me the i5 or i7 is again something that for me is good either way. I'll check out the ram suggestion.

If I was to crossfire the 6970 and had the i5-2500k cpu, 8gb ram , 1000wt psu , p67 mobo ,etc, Do you guys think it would solidfy it for the next few years because that is what I'm most concerned about.

There's no need to crossfire them for a while. You should be able to max out most if not all games with just one and then by the time you need another card to play games maxed out, the 6970 will be dirt cheap so you can easily afford to throw another in your system.
But to answer the question, yes. I think the system will last for quite a while.

I agree. One 6970 is a great card and, personally, I don't like muti-GPU setups. However, you can just pick up another 6970 or sell the 6970 and buy an even better card.

That's what I plan on doing at least.
