The 1600 RAM is still faster. CAS latency doesn't carry over between frequencies.

You really don't need water cooling, as you almost certainly won't be pushing your 2600K to its OC limit. Just grab a $50 Mugen 3 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...).

I agree on the HDD idea, but only if it's possible to start up RAID with data already on one of the drives. I don't know if that's the case; if it is, go for it.

This PSU looks nicer to me, and it's 80+ Gold and $140 after MIR. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here's your beastly $270 mobo. It'll allow you to upgrade your CPU to Ivy if you ever feel the craving. Honestly, though, a Z68 Extreme4 would probably do you fine for $125. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
