so my current setup is
Q6600
4870
550W
P5Q-SE
2GB 800Mhz

the parts i want to buy are
MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67
Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost)
Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5" 64GB
MSI R6950 Twin Frozr II OC Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
COOLER MASTER V6 GT RR-V6GT-22PK-R1 120mm DynaLoop CPU Cooler

would all those parts go together and would i have to get a bigget power supply or would 550W be enough? and is the sandy bridge CPU fixed?

The wattage of the PSU isn't sufficient information to answer your question. Please provide the manufacturer and if possible the no kidding part number so it can be examined more closely and provide the information you require.

I would go with the 2500k, most games cant use more than 3 cpu cores and only a few use all 4, the extra 4 ht threads will be wasted and unused. Its $80 to get the ht feature over the 2500K, for a gaming computer both cpus are about equal.

I would put the $80 towards a new case, ps, hdd so that you dont have to take the old computer apart, it looks like its still pretty good and would be easy to sell or it would make a decent second computer.
