For gaming save money and get I5 2500K, the I7 bring little to nothing on the table for gaming. Get a new card sell your 9800GT.

It would be best to get a 750w like this so that you don't have to buy another PSU when you plan to SLI the 560tis.

Before I even looked at the posts I was going to suggest the 2500k and Extreme3 Gen3 board because that's what I just purchase not to long ago and it works wonderful!!

Also a tip.. if you *must* get that cpu combo to save a few dollars do so. Otherwise buy the 8gb Sniper G.Skill ram kit as I've been able to OC my build to 4.3GHz rock solid without the need to adjust ram timings. :)
