Well I think what you have is already very good, I have the sabertooth and 560ti and they are great. I'm not sure what you usually do (editing, gaming or both etc.) but if your primarily gaming why not go 2500k and 8gig ram so you can get a 570 or the i7 and 8gig ram and get a 448 core 560ti that's what I personally would do. Or get an ssd using the money from downgrading the parts above.

Otherwise I think I would stick with what you have now.

EDIT:have you got a copy of windows for the new mobo?

I've been thinking about the 2500k / 2550k, but I definitely want the 16GB. I regularly hit 7.5GBs RAM usage. I use it a lot for gaming and editing (not very intensive there... 90 percent is dreamweaver and Photoshop), but more for hosting servers for me and my friends ans gaming

Is the i7 worth the money? I keep my computers for around three years on average before they see any sort of update.

If you have it in the budget no reason not to grab the 2600K.

Don't forget to buy some 120mm fans for the H70, it doesn't come with any.

Personally would go for a Gen3 motherboard, but the main benefit is for IB, so if you're not upgrading for 3yrs we'll be in new sockets anyway.

aren't the new ones set to be released by April? I would, but the person who I'm giving my current.rig to needs it soon

So it looks like I will be sticking with the stuff I have picked out now, possibly looking at the i5 to get a better video card.

EDIT: Looks like it finally became public..

if you look at this article here, 1600 mhz is the sweet spot for ddr3 currently
AnandTech - Sandy Bridge Memory Scaling: Choosing the Best DDR3

could get a 16gb, 1600mhz kit to save $40 bucks.

AnandTech - Bench - CPU
the i5 is a solid choice

The i7 is sold out on Newegg at the moment.. hopefully it'll be back in stock soon. Seeing as how I do have the cash in the budget, I will probably be getting the i7.

That and a different CPU cooler... the people I have talked to say the H70 water cooler is very noisy.

And about the RAM... will do. That one was the first one I found and stuck in the cart

What CPU coolers do you guys recommend? I'm looking at around 60-70 dollars for one, preferably cheaper
