Great Deals,Is This Build Good? (Under $2000)

I've never built before, but ready to give it a shot. I will just be building the computer as I have the keyboard, mouse, monitor and speakers. Other than Windows 7, I have no need of other software.

I am looking for a cost anywhere between $1500 and $2000.
The most important things to me are speed of regular use (surfing internet, running programs), gaming performance, and a computer that will last.
I use my computer mainly for gaming/internet. I'd love to be able to run games on max visual settings. (The game I am playing now is Star Wars The Old Republic)

Approximate Purchase Date: Next 2 weeks
Budget Range: 1500-2000 before rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming/surfing web
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference, I've been using newegg
Country: US, California
Parts Preferences: Intel, Cool looking case
Overclocking: Maybe... I would do it but I do not know how
SLI or Crossfire: Eventually yes.
Monitor Resolution: Currently running 1680x1050 (Going to upgrade monitor)
Additional Comments: Would prefer a quiet PC

I am working on NewEgg finding some killer deals and found these items for my new build for about $900. Could someone take a looks and please let me know if they see any problems or components they do not think are good?

  1. Best answer
    Drop down to i5-2500k. Great build!
  2. Thanks!
    And is there not a big difference between the i5-2500k and the i7-2600k? (Just looking for a little info)
  3. Nevermind, read up on the forum and found my answer. i5-2500k all the way.

    Also, now that I am getting the i5-2500k, I am looking for new deals and does it make sense to save $30 and get GeIL RAM:
    Or spend $30 more and stick with Corsair?

    I heard RAM is all the same, is this true?
