I'd take Jason's build and swap a few components.

, gamers don't get much benefit from the 2600k features.
GPU - Take the $ you saved from the CPU and get an EVGA Superclocked GTX570
For the rest, the motherboard is fine if you don't plan on overclocking, I've read the LE version of Asus's P8P67 can be lacking in options, assume the same goes for the P8Z68.
If you're going to get an aftermarket heatsink you might want ram with smaller heatspreaders for clearance, 8GB G.Skill Sniper 1600
, same specs as the Corsair, just smaller.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
