For the HDDs, just buy an IDE to SATA converter/adapter and you should be able to use them, I believe. The SSD is just fine. The EVO version of the cooler you have up there is well worth the $5 extra (after rebates). If you plan to ever OC, you will need a "k" version processor. I suggest the i5-2500k for the $ saved and better performance for your gaming needs. If you plan to Crossfire/SLI, I recommend a 650W version of that Seasonic PSU.

EDIT: OOPS, forgot that the LGA2011 only supports i7 processors. In that case, get the i7-2600k.

huh did not even know it worked like that sata to ide http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
i guess that one then
ok got evo change also got mounting brackets and swaped psu to 620 hope thats enuff the 650 was a big jump in price
now my understanding is that the lga2011 was not backwards compatible so my olny choice for cpus were Core i7 3930K the 3960X and my pick the 3820 and that is was semi oc via the CPU Strap
i also did not think it mattter much because lga2011 were better and once prices come down i can swap out for a true beast down the line am i mistaken ?

Don't go with the i7 2600K with a 2011 motherboard, completely different socket! Either use an 1155 motherboard, or go for one of the 2011 cpu's (i don't have any opinions on the best to go for though, others will be able to advise).
