IMPORTANT: I do not live in US, im Brazilian. If you pay $250,00 on a Graphic Card, it will cost me more or less two times plus taxes, so $250,00 ill pay R$ 600,00. i.e The ATI HD 6950 2/256 is R$ 898,00 (OR MORE).

Hi there guys. I need a little help here. First time building this kind of PC.

Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 LE RAID/HDMI/CROSS Socket 1155 (I read that is the best to use with the Sandy Bridge 2500K)
Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz 6MB 5GT/s BOX Socket 1155 (read this is better than the normal i7)
Case: HM NK770 ATX 4 Black
HD SATA II 1TB Samsung 7200rpm
RAM Memory: 3 x DDR3 4GB 1333MHz (PC3-10600) Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G
Graphic Card: PCI-E 2GB ATI Radeon HD 6950 DDR5/HDMI/256BIT (read that is a best cost benefit)
Power Supply: Aerocool 700W E80-700 Eco-Friendly Edition (more than enough)
Windows 7 OEM Home Premium 64 bits GFC-00627

I have a few questions about it.

1st; Is this good for a few years? 2, 3 years at least.
2nd; Wich CPU Cooler should i take? more like a medium, good, but not too expensive.

I need to buy fan coolers and cpu cooler or just the CPU one?
Im really excited about this, im gettin it next week so i need to know if im doing the right thing.

More about : build time

The mistake in your build is the RAM . That is a triple channel kit for motherboards using the previous generation socket 1366 or X58 motherboards.
A sandy bridge cpu in a P67 motherboard uses dual channel so you want a kit of 2 x4 gig , and it should be 1.5 volt .
Ideally 1600 MHz

I think a build like this is going to last as well as any computer possibly can . In a couple of years replacing the graphics card will extend its gaming life considerably .

The 2500k is fine with its stock cooler , but will run quieter and overclock higher with even a midrange cooler like the coolermaster Hyper 212 or xigmatek 1283.
I would buy on price for this part

I Agree, a 2*4 GB Ram should be enough. I'm also not sure about that PSU (never herd of it), and this board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... should be a great option too.

Hmm, i see.
I Checked the Hyper 212 Plus, read some good things about it and it fits on my new case (Thermaltake V1).

About the RAM, I wont miss the 4GB RAM? Im about to confirm the purchase.
