As it is, the list looks OK to me, but I have a few suggestions:

1) For gaming, the 2500K is as good as it gets, it will oc to the same sane levels as the 2600K, and costs $100 less. Use that $100 elsewhere.

2) The Xigmatek gaia is similar to the hyper212, and is only $30:

3) The corsair 850 is a fine psu, but is stronger than you need.
A GTX570 needs 550w with 38a on the 12v rails plus two 6-pin PCI-E power leads.
If you are planning on sli, then OK. But, I would plan on the next upgrade being kepler or possibly GTX590, and selling the GTX570.
Be careful about chasing combo's. A XFX850w unit is only $90 after rebate:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

4) A good case, but a bit pricey. If you love it , get it. You will be seeing and touching it every day.
But, for half the cost, look at the Antec 300 illusion model:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

5) Use the savings to upgrade to a GTX 580, or get a 60-120gb ssd for the os and apps.

I saw the case combo that you selected and it says it is a 600tm. I assume this is a 600t with just a mesh side panel, but the only thing that concerns me is that it is not listed on corsair's website. I know you can buy a window or mesh side panel for this case but this just seemed weird to me.

Alright thanks. I may switch to a 2500k since i have read a bunch of reviews on here and most people say the same thing. I also may upgrade to a 580 but I am not sure yet.
