well this is my spec im going to get when i build my computer which will be designed for gaming.. can i ask for people to check that everything is compatable etc incase i missed something

Im having a thought about the RAM selection thought im struggling to choose between a dual or triple channel

Dual channel: GeIL 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz VALUE PLUS Dual Channel

Triple Channel: Corsair Vengeance 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C8 1600MHz Triple Channel Kit

im not sure which i should choose and if i went for the triple what impact would that have on gaming instead of choosing the dual channel

All thoughts are welcome thanks you

Sometimes things get missed..

You need dual channel ram, and ensure its 1.5V ram... I think you'll underperrform wit triple.
Rest looks good, but with out links I can't be 101%

thanks how come it would underperform with triple?

also what about the power supply

the tech guy that recommended it to me said it is a very high quality one but its just in back of my head that is the 650W enough

Triple channel memory only helps if your cpu has a triple channel memory controller. The i7 2500K (and the i7 2600K) have a Dual Channel Memory Controller so they perform best with a Dual Channel kit of memory. Using 3 sticks of memory with a Dual Channel Memory Controller will disable the Dual Channel capabilities and it will run in Single Channel Mode.

650 watts is enough power but XFX isn't what I would consider "High Quality" when it comes to power supplies.
