First of, thanks guys for your help. I've learned countless info so far and looking to learn more. I posted a build for a computer I'm preparing to buy and instead of continuing the thread I'm starting a new one since I've changed what I'm going to get from you guys' awesome recommendations. Right now I'm stumped on the type of motherboard and, to a much lesser extent, the psu. I want the ability to upgrade later--wont be CFing now (I primarily play WoW) but will in the future so I'm trying to keep that in mind for the mobo (and psu):

CPU: Intel i7 2600K (will be OC'ing)
MoBo: 1 of these 3
1. ASUS P8P67 Pro Intel P67
2. Asrock P67 Extreme6
3. Gigabyte LGA 1155 Intel P67
(I'll pay for good performance, but most reviews I've read on these have been good, so I'm stumped!!!)
GPU: already have Radeon HD 6850
RAM: Either 1. G. Skill Sniper (1600) 2 x 4GB = 8 GB or 2. G Skill Ripjaw 2 x 4GB = 8 GB (1600)
PSU: XFX 850
CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper212+
HD: BootUp: Vertex 2 SSD; Storage: Samsung F3 1TB (7200 rpm)
Thanks for your help guys!

Since this is a gaming build, get an i5-2500K as CPU (100$ less and probably no difference in games) and for MB, I would go for an Asus P8P67 Pro or ASRock P67 Extreme 4 (similar features, might perform slightly less, not OC as well, but is also 40$ less) and put that money in your pockets for your next GPU.
