If you're planning to overclock the CPU the i5 or i7 Sandy Bridges ending with "k" are the best (i5-2500k/i7 2600k) as they allow a greater degree of control.


Also, if you want to save some money you can get two 6950's and OC them to 6970 speeds. That's what a lot of people do to save a bit of money because it's perfectly possible to OC the 6950's to 6970 speeds and performance levels.


Other than that, it looks pretty solid to me.
