I would suggest a I5-2500K build..Newer tech. and have you looked for these parts @ Newegg?

You might save some there with combos and possibly free shipping..

What you choose looks good however, at this point I don't see the point in using an i7-950 when you can get an i5-2500k for less money and it performs better. Also, any reason you don't want to use the egg?

If you switch you will need

i5-2500k
a p67 motherboard
DUAL channel ram instead of triple channel.

Actually, the i5-2500k would be cheaper.

Motherboard $190 ($10 cheaper)
GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD4 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Processor $224 ($70 cheaper)
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop

Memory $110 ($35 more with 2GB more RAM
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

Total savings = $45 for better performance.

The i5-2500k is a new architecture which implemented some changes making them much faster. Read any review you like - the new i5-2500k and i7-2600k are at the top of the benchmarks.

how much better performance would the i7-2600k vs the new i5-2500k and would a i7-2600k would be worth the money to build a new pc around it?

Not for gaming...But if you were going to be doing a lot of Video encoding, then the I7 would perform better there
