made some changes for your budget...

since you're not overclocking - you don't need the P67 motherboard or the 'K' series CPU - go for that combo with the i7-2600 + Intel H67 motherboard /w SATA6 + USB3

RAM go for a 2x4gb kit (as opposed to 2 kits of 2x2)

that Antec case might be more suited for the 'work environment' - it is very silent... and also comes with the Antec 500w PSU

and now you even have room leftover for an SSD for the OS and the apps..! (you won't regret it..)
