Performance Optimization (BIOS modifications)
I personally wouldn't use a 590, its just not cost effective or energy efficient. Currently 590's are priced at $1049 on amazon while GTX 580's are $480 each and give you more performance if you run them in SLI.
The 2700k has replaced the 2600k as the performance king if your looking for top dawg performance.
If you do video encoding then upgrade to a Z68 motherboard. If you do not do video encoding then the benefits of upgrading to a Z68 are pretty much limited to better support for future CPU's (ivy bridge).
I'm not sure why you would want a wireless NIC on a desktop, but to each there own, if its something you need then go for it.
Other then that, I always recommend people get 1866 dram if they are sticklers for performance. 1600mhz ddr3 scores a 7.6 on the wei, 1866 scores a 7.9 (maximum.) Real world performance differences between the memory speeds on Intel systems is negligible though.
