you'd be better off with a Sandy Bridge setup (socket 1155), rather than the Sandy Bridge-E setup (socket 2011), you've got going there... and use the money saved to get the newer gen Nvidia card - the GTX 680 over the 580...

and Ivy Bridge is just around the corner too... hold on for a bit... and then also the availability of the GTX 680's should be good, by the time Ivy Bridge comes out (end of April)...
