  1. The motherboard and cpu are incompatible: the Core i7-2600K is an 1155 socket and the motherboard is a (last generation) 1366 socket. Try looking for a 1155 Z68 motherboard.

    If you really want the successor to the x58, try an x79 board with an LGA2011 processor.

  3. I won't knock you on the case, thats up to personal preference. I have heard that case is good for acoustic dampening.

    Skip the 55Ti, go with a 6850 or 6870.
    6850 in same price range

    16GB of ram is over kill. 8GB will do you just fine
    G.SKILL http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428

    Skip that motherboard. Its not a bad board but doesn't go with the CPU I would pick
    ASRock http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157265

    Skip that processor as well. Go with the i5 2500K

    I was going to pick up that SSD..

    Powersupply.. I am biased to XFX based on past history with their products
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207017

    Your parts without power supply = $1170
    What I would go with and power supply = $1137
  4. don't get the 550ti, its a complete rip-off, and since you can afford a 2600k, then upgrading your gpu would make your gaming experience much more enjoyable.
    as for the motherboard you could also have a look at if the z68 ones offer you faetures that you would need
