You could definitely spend less on the power supply, and get away with a 600w. Are you also going to utilize all the add-ons the P8P67 deluxe has? you could go with a slimmed down P8P67 and save a lot of money too. To be honest, you could make a build with half that budget that would probably perform more than well enough for your needs, and you could always upgrade down the line if you needed more. There is always SLI for graphics, you could always get a solid state drive later, you could always overclock, etc.
This is good advice.

You can still build an i7 2600k/2500k rig and have plenty of cash to spare:

i7 2600k $330 shipped off amazon ($304 after taxes at microcenter)
any good p67 mobo. UD3 from Gigabyte is $135
8gb ddr3 1600 ram $110
64gb ssd boot/apps drive $100 (mc)
1tb WD hdd storage drive ($75-$15 coupon on newegg): $60 (can add more as necessary in future, too)
gtx 560 brand new: $225
psu: $100 can easily get you a quality unit that will power this with room to spare
case: $100 limit. pick something. (I like the CM 690II)

if you want you can change the config around a bit, using 4 series GPU(s) maybe to save a bit of cash or what not. If you spend that amount you're looking at roughly $1160 for a pretty beastly rig. I did this quick didn't look up every possible cheapest alternative, but you can easily make a good sandybridge rig for $1k that meets your requirements. Did not add aftermarket cooler - not necessary (you can hit 4ghz with good temps on stock one).. but for another $30-50 you can play it safe and get something decent.

This has seriosly got me thinking also, as i was planning on putting together basically the same rig as the OP has in his sig (dam the power gamer in me likes to raise hell). I guess I'll work on 2 builds, 1 with the basics and the other with the few extras and see what the price differnce comes to.

I see what you are saying about slimming it down, but then I also read the replies of those that think the build I'm doing is overkill, based upon what I am using this computer for. So I guess it's build a computer at $500 dollars, pocket 1500 or slim it down but not save as much.

May I ask a longevitiy question? If I was to build the PC that I have in my sig, how much of lifespan could it potentially have (with no part swapping in the future)?

Haha, I am almost done with my sig rig. I am completely aware that my motherboard and processor are overkill for what I plan to do, but I like to make sure I have the best I can get and not worry about it, and don't mind spending the extra money...but I could have easily spent 500 bucks less at least and been very happy.

plus I can't argue with the bragging rights. My power supply was on clearance at Best Buy for 75 bucks so I would be crazy to have passed it up. I already had one GTX 460, and because I like to max out high end games at 1080p, that was justified for the second card. For the most part, working at BB, when my customers ask me about how much an ideal gaming desktop is for the average gamer, $700 is a budget price point, $1k is a perfect price point. $2k is a hardcore price point, and $3k+ is an overkill price point, at least unless you are running a multiple hi-res monitor set-up. I think those price brackets make the most sense, and match up to every build I have worked around.

I've built entire pcs for $600 that can do all that you described. My last one for a friend consisted of a 4890, AMD 955, 790FX board, and a 600w psu. Look around, it can easily be done if you're willing to grab Open Box, Refurb, etc.

You're way better off building a $1k computer today and using the other $1k for upgrades next year. The $1k will outperform your needs now and the $1k cash injection a year from now will easily outperform the $2k that today's money could buy.
