Just get you a good aftermarket heatsink and overclock the guts out of that i7 and you'll be fine.

May as well get an I7 2600k.  Water cool it with Swiftech, Corsair, etc. in a push/pull config using Cougar PWM fans.

Get a 2560 x 1440 monitor (Dell, etc.).

Get a Samsung 840 PRO SSD 256 or 512 for your OS and games.

Replace the fans in your case with better ones.

True, not much difference between them...2600K great for overclocking.

You will eventually be a convert to water cooling IF you enjoy overclocking...quieter, too.  Also in some cases a gpu cooler can be added to the loop.

You will be glad you got the SSD.

You will be glad you got the better monitor.

You will be glad you got better fans after a little research.

okay, as i thought, well as i stated before, i am not much for overclocking - even i now it can be that harmfull if you only do it the times you really need it -. but if you running it fulltime non stop, then some of the hardware will fail qickly/qicker , - well thats my understanding of it, even it could be great to do it  - plus i think to , at if you cant keep up with that game you ar playing, then buy better hardware , for if you need to overclock every time to game it or something, then it shorten´s the life spand to of the card and cpu to -..

again  thats what i have being told and always know with overclocking , could be its better / safer to day, like with those card , cpu and mobos there disgin to hold it - so  ,

 no i dont think so , even it look awersome if you make it right,and sure it maybe qiueter , but i dont mind the fans, as long as you get the right one then they dont so much noise

., i am sure i will

hm, i am glad with this one ? but i thinking on somepoint, in the future get 30 or higher, instead og 24 , so

i am sure i will that to -

NO...you will NOT harm, lessen or shorten the life by overclocking your components if you can CONTROL your component temperatures.  Overclocking done sensibly is a FREE upgrade in component performance.  Those gpus for example; especially the TDBC have substantial flexibility to be OCd...just do it incrementally!
