Drop the 2600K, you don't need it for gaming. A 2500K performs 99% of the 2600K in gaming so you will gain nothing from that. That'll save you 100$. Use that and get a DirectCu II 560 Ti or MSI Twin Frozr II 560 Ti.

Get the Asrock Extreme4 P67 instead and save 20$. Get an Antec or XFX core model instead, it'll save you from Corsair's high price for their TX series.

What's your budget and what's your monitors resolution...and does that budget include Windows ?

Like Shinobi pointed out in his post...the 2500K for gaming, and with the money saved you can get a case with better cooling and up grade on your gpu.

This build down below allows you to add another one of those factory over clocked gtx 560's later on for SLI. That case down below just came out on the market yesterday, but if you go to the Cooler Master site and click on that case there is some professional reviews on it. Also check out the Cooler Master Scout and Cooler Master HAF 922 for a decent price on a good case.
