I get an error. But firstly, a) I hope you mean 2600k, b) 8GB is a good amount, if not overkill but good for the 2XXX series, nice card but you can do well with an 6850 and flash the bios to unlock 6870 potential, windows 7 is good.

However it's quite likely without knowing anything else that it uses stock heatsink, generic power supply, and it doesn't even tell you what motherboard you're getting, I personally would not risk it.

Building for yourself ftw. At least then you know what's going in is quality stuff because you picked it.
