Default Upgrading to i7

Basically my PC just kicked the bucket, turns on fans spin, and the motherboard doesn't give any beeps and the screen stays blank. So deciding now would be a good time to upgrade it. Tried all the usual stuff, reseating the hardware, taking stuff out, resetting BIOS, etc. None of that worked.

I need to get a new Motherboard, RAM, Processor and Power Supply. Running a ATi HD4870 which is still in working condition so not wasting money on a new graphics card for the time being, possibly in the future.

Basic list which I decided on was:

Scan.co.uk: Intel CPU Core i7 2600 Sandy Bridge Quad Core Processor - BX80623I72600

Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3P P67 Motherboard
Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3P, Intel P67 Express, S 1155, PCI-E 2.0 (x16), DDR3 2133, SATA 6Gb/s / RAID, ATX

Scan.co.uk: Corsair Memory XMS3 6GB DDR3 2000 MHz CAS 9 Dual Channel Desktop - CMX6GX3M3B2000C9

Scan.co.uk: Corsair Builder Series CMPSU-600CX 600W Power Supply (PSU)

As far as I know it's all compatible but decided I'd get some input from people around as I've not built a computer in a while.

Got about 600 to spend, from the UK.
HAF 932 -- ASUS P8Z68-V
Intel i5 @ 4.5Ghz -- CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus
8GB Corsair Vengeance Jet Black 1600MHz -- 2x XFX ATi Radeon HD 6970 2GB
