i would highly reccommend going with a newer Sandy Bridge setup, such as the 2500K which would be a better choice and is a better CPU for gaming at a lower price:

and what resolutions do you play at? imo a 6990 is a bit of an overkill unless you have 3+ monitors @1200.

yes, the 2500K (as seen in those benches) would be a much better option for your needs and paired with something such as a GTX570/560Ti/ATI6970/6950 it would be great for your needs.

what resolution is your monitor? (1080p?)

also for your needs 4gb of 1600Mhz ram or 8Gb of 1600Mhz ram would be more than enough.

i would reccommend a SSD in that budget, also what mobo/PSU/case are you planning to buy (also the built in sound is good enough for most people's needs).

The improved microarchitecture of the 2nd generation Intel® Core® processors give them a performance advantage of 10 to 15% over the 1st generation Intel Core processors at the same clock speed. So the Intel Core i5-2500K will not only outperform the Intel Core i7-930 but should do so while being less expensive. Also the Intel Core i5-2500K overclocks even better.
