First, you'll want the 6700K, not the plain 6700. Overclockable, higher base speed, and since you're getting liquid cooling, you'll want that more then the normal 6700. Secondly, get a 1 TB HDD. Their for similar prices as a 750 GB one. Go with the Western Digital Caviar Blue, maybe spend a bit more and get the Western Digital Black, or perhaps get that one new-ish if I know correctly one from Toshiba, the P300, though I'm not sure how durable those will be, since their relatively new.

Pretty much my thoughts there.
