These are the four sandybridges that i would go for if i were to go for a SB.

Now from what i heard those 2 motherboards are the most stable and best-for-price at the moment.
I just like gigabyte more than Asus , but can some recommend which should i go for and with which SB?

i5 2500
i5 2500k
i7 2600
i7 2600k

Those are them , so do i really need the i72600k? or just the 2600 , and if i get 40-60 PC's all of them should be i7's? and not some i5s?

that would be really helpfull if i can get some explanation why go with SB and why this type of SB. and i dont think i should be OCing anything atleast not in the 1st 5-6 months just so i dont get overheating and/or reducing the lifespan etc.

"k" means unlocked and you can OC it until "smurfs jump out of the computer and punch you in the face". No K means there is an upper limit to how far you can OC it.

The difference between the i5 and i7 is negligible.

i7 - i5 CPU Comparison - Toms Hardware

I'd go the i5 2500. It is the most economic, gives you great performance and you can turbo boost it a little to give it some extra oomph. I would say if you buy the majority as this and then a handful i5 2500k, you can then OC those handful to some hardcore specs for the VIP gamers.

Are these computers already purchased?
if not here are some parts suggestions (prices include MiR).:

1) Get better PSUs.
$69.99 650w PC Power and Cooling.
$79.99 750w OCZ .
$79.99 650w Corsair.

2) 60x of that hard drive will run you ~$5,100.
I doubt you will need 1TB of space for these computers.
3x packs of WD Caviar Black 750GB = $3,900.

3) $100 per case + $20 shipping x 60 = $7,200.
Raidmax Thunder $35 + $10 x 60 = $2,700.
Sentey Black Box $40 + $13 x 60 = $3,180.
Antec Three Hundred $60 + $0 x 60 = $3,600.
CM HAF 912 $55 + $8 x 60 = $3,780.

4) Newegg is showing that motherboard and ram as deactivated.
4b) Motherboard uses dual channel ram, you picked triple channel.

*Edit: Forgot about the Shop Runner trial Newegg offers, would cut shipping down to $0.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
Nobody wants to read a wall of text, formatting is your friend.

7. Steam ( all fps games )
8. Call of Duty
9. Mayb some Crysis etc high Gfx required games.
No Starcraft?!

It is easier to go with all the same build but I have seen PC places with designated sections for different games (i.e. the FPS section will have 19" monitors and everywhere else has a 22" widescreen or something)

assuming the computers will be on 24/7, it may be better to get a more energy efficient power supply now.
looking at your parts, I am estimating 150 watt idle, 340 watt load
gold vs bronze = 5% energy savings = $10.75 savings per system per year.
$20 dollar difference could be made up in 2 years, going into the 3rd year would be saving your money.

led back lit = more energy savings, 1080p screen.
