One question: Do you me an i5-2500k cpu or an i7-2600k cpu? I'm going to assume that you meant the latter of the two, in which I'm going to say what I've decided on myself for the new system I'm ordering this week - go with the i5-2500k and spend the extra ~$100 on a 6870 or better gpu. The i5-2500k is tested with a 6970 on the next to last page of the review below, and it smoked (IMO) the hexacore AMD cpu. Even a newegg cost comparison of a 6770 vs a 6670 is only a $20 or so difference (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121474 vs http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121442)

TH did a review and came up with the conclusion of "low CPU, medium GPU" (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/star-wars-gaming-tests-review,3087.html), although their testing was done prior to the official launch. It seems like their final recommendations are "At high settings, even with 4x MSAA, the game doesn’t need much more, and a Radeon HD 5770/6770 or GeForce GTX 550 Ti can handle 1920x1080.", but it's still worth it to me to grab a 6870.

You didn't mention what Mobo you're going for, but I spent a lot of time looking around (better part of two weeks at work with not much to do) and decided on an Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z (cuz I want a pretty small case, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131806), which seems rock solid to me. And I'd also recommend stepping up to some faster ram - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231476 is only $80 for some screeming fast ram.
