Default New PC Build - Require Input

Been a while since I posted here. . .since my last build in 2007 after the release of the Intel E6X50 series CPUs. (see sig) So I am now completely out of the loop about what's 'hot or not'.

So looking for for some helpful input:

General PC usage:
Gaming -
  • Guild Wars 2 (if it ever releases )
  • TF2
  • Anything I want to play in the future
  • Video editing in Vegas if the mood strikes me.
  • Audio Recording with Sonar using a boat load of Amp sims and plugins

Threw together some components from Newegg. Everything is up in the air for change though:

Case:
Newegg.com - Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with Five Fans, window side panel, top HDD dock

Mobo:
Newegg.com - ASUS P8Z77-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

CPU:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I72600K

PSU:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 (CMPSU-750HX) 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

GPU:
Newegg.com - EVGA 02G-P3-1568-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Bought this few weeks ago when my 8800GTS suddenly died. Will be transfering to new PC and putting a low end video card in old PC.

RAM:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-8GAB

Newegg.com - Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F120GB3A-BK 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

HDD:
Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Heat Sink:
Newegg.com - XIGMATEK Dark Knight II SD1283 Night Hawk Edition CPU Cooler with Stealth Aerospace Industry Thermal conductive ceramic coating ALL intel AMD IVY BRIDGE compatible

Optical:

The speed difference is gonna blow your mind. Case is merely personal preference, so long as you get something that can handle an ATX board you're good and set parts wise.
Enjoy your new beasty.

Lol, your PC in your sig is almost exactly what my current desktop was/is like. I've swapped out the GPU and cooler now, but yeah lol.

I think at the time everyone here was pretty much building the same exact PC.
