    Keep the 6970, GS800, and HAF X

    The rest sell on TPU BST section.

    Pickup a Z68 motherboard with Intel 2600K CPU and 2x2GB DDR3 1600.

    You're in trouble already...your CPU is vastly underpowered for that video card.

    Bulldozer? Intel is currently the best bang for the buck but if AMD is your style then I don't discriminate :)

    OP what is your goal? If you'd like to game shoot for a 2500k and a decent z68/p67 board and clock the 2500k up a bit. It's a great combination that is hard to beat. World's better than your Conroe C2D.

    No real reason for 2600k for most users.

    2500K is a great CPU as well, Kenshai has that right! What a 2600K has different is the Hyperthreading technology of 8Threads compaired to 4threads
