Need Help with first time build

Here is what I am thinking based on research
I want something that will not be outdated too fast. I like the performance of the 2600K. Any tips let me know.

More about need time build
  1. LGA1366 motherboard and a LGA1155 CPU don't match. Find a good LGA1155 board and drop the CPU to I5 2500K if this is for gaming!
  2. it is. what is the benefit of getting the 2500k vs the 2600k
  3. No benefit and really no loss if the primary use is gaming which can not use the 8 thread capability of the I7. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-sandy-bridge-cpu,3030-4.html
  4. well that clears up alot. Now one last thing. Any links to detailed and accurate build your own pc with people who really know what they are talking about.
  5. You can save $150 by swapping the H50 for a Cooler Master Hyper 212, and swapping the HX750 for the TX750. You're getting a full size tower, and modular PSUs are mainly good for small and mid-towers where space is considerably tight. You don't have that problem in larger Cooler Master cases.

    Also just to let people know if you don't already you can get windows 7 for $30 using a edu email. So if you are building your own computer this would be a huge money saver.
