Firstly, your motherboard choice is x58 - that's 1366 intel slot for the original Core i7 series.

IT WILL NOT WORK WITH YOUR CPU.

You need a motherboard with the 1155 slot for that Sandy Bridge CPU.

Also, do you need the 2600k? If you're gaming the 2500k is the chip to get. You don't need HT (2600k) for simple gaming these days, and the Sandy Bridge chips are fast as hell.

PSU seems like overkill and I'm REALLY not a fan of the choice in case. What is your logic behind these choices?

The rest looks fine, though I'm SURE you could do better with the same money.

Motherboard + RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.632698

CPU + Heatsink/Fan
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.625350

The case REALLY is crap. Too small, terrible orientation, terrible cable management, etc etc.

I suggest using the money saved on components here towards a better case.

*Edit* If it were me, I'd get this case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119196

with this PSU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371021

That PSU should handle an overclocked 2500k with SLI GTX460's. (perhaps double check that with someone else)

Personally, I would aim to include this HDD setup instead:

Nice choices, and a bit cheaper as well, is the 2500 future proof, could i still stream high quality fine thats 1 reason i jumped to an i7 for extra speed. Well i want a fold out case diving into pcs to clean and fix is a ***** specialy for cpu.

The 2500k is WAY more than enough to stream high quality video.
