I built a pretty nice computer about three years or more ago

Generic Specs:

E6600
GTX 8800 (Died so moved on to a GTX 460)
4gb Ram
No SSD just Internal Sata HD
Cant remember the Mobo as i am at work at the moment

I just priced out a build on newegg that is going to run $1,780.98

Good idea to build now or should I wait for the new 2011 socket? An any advice on parts is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I would build now. There will always be the next fastest, greatest tech just coming out soon and I don't think there is much more to come this year apart from AMD Bulldozer which is socket AMD3+

The ASUS P8P67 Mobo selected disables access to integrated graphics and associated benefits when the 2600K is installed.
I would consider using a Z68 based Mobo.
