I am upgrading my current system(see signature) just wondering what suggestions yall may have. Here is what I plan to upgrade to:

-Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

-MSI P67A-GD55 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

-CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

-Intel 510 Series (Elm Crest) SSDSC2MH120A2K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


I will stuffing this inside my Silverstone TJ09 and will be using my Corsair H50 with dual 120's. I also have a new EVGA 470GTX SC which should handle whatever I throw at it.

I will be running Win7(64bit) and mainly will be gaming, and ripping dvd's from my collection.

I have found some items on my wish list a few dollars cheaper at fry's so some items will be purchased there. Plus I can save on shipping.

So if you have any suggestions I would love to hear about them.

I will also be purchasing a new case and power supply and reusing my old system components in a new home server with 2 x 2TB Samsung drives.

Newegg has a great price on them.

Everything is compatible that you've listed.
For a gaming build with overclocking the CPU you could get the i5 2500K vs i7 2600K.
