I bought a new GFX a couple of months ago (a 460GTX), and I have been waiting for the sandy-bridge since then.
But a new CPU also means new motherboard and memory. Atleast in my case.

After alot of reading the forums, I have found some parts I might go ahed and order. BUT, before I do, I would like an opinion on the parts, just to make sure I havent missed anything.

Anyway, the following items are what I have selected so far:

CPU: Core i7 2600k

MB: Asus P8P67 EVO

MEM: Corsair:

I would like to OC, but nothing hardcore.
I dont plan on doing SLI, but I would like to have the option.

Btw, I currently have this PSU (Corsair hx620w), which sould be enough, right?

So what do you guys think? Anything you would change?

You don't need the i7 2600K the i5 2500K is a better deal and overclocks like a champ
for the mobo get the p8p67 pro it is better than the evo

Option #2 but dominator gt is so expensive get the g skill ripjaws x 8gb 2 x 4gb instead you won't be able to notice the difference I assure you I actually would just go with a 4gb set 2 x 2gb its all you need and high end 2 x 4gb is expensive
