Ok new stuff (thanks Roark and Invisible) in a list to help both me and you. Shipping and rebates included.

CPU & GPU: Intel i5 2500k & EVGA GTX 560 ti Combo : $420

MB & PSU: ASUS P8P67 & CORSAIR AX750 Combo : $310

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB : $80

HDD: Western Digital Black 1TB 7200 RPM :$90

Optical drive: Sony Optiarc CD/DVD Burner times 2: $40

Case: COOLER MASTER Storm Scout :$90

Shipping for everything is $15. I love free shipping!

Total is coming out right around $1045 with shipping and rebates included.

I have already ordered the OS: Newegg - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit because it was on sale for $80 with a promo code.

I have two more important questions. Can the GPU be OCed more by me if I would want to in the future? And will the GPU fit in the case for sure? The review here: at 4 minutes says full length cards will fit but I want to make sure.

I will buy this on Monday(possibly Sunday) if there are no conflictions with anything. Maybe I will get it in time to build it next weekend if the shipping is actually 3-day.

any interest in an i7 2600k + asus p8p67 pro motherboard combo?
say $387.85 shipped? same price as if you were to buy the 2500k + same motherboard combo from newegg.

cpu does not include a heatsink or box, but comes with the booklet.
motherboard includes everything.
both items are used.

YGPM.

EDIT: I bought the CPU and MB from Fat.Clown and purchased the other items from newegg. Just to let you know I decided to get the CORSAIR HX750 PSU. I do need a CPU cooler now so if you have a suggestion leave it in this thread: Cooler for i7 2600k on a P8P67

Thanks again to everyone for the help!
