Hey guys, here's what I thought.

If I had $2500 to spend on a pc, I would keep $600 for the mainboard and cpu, $350 for the sound, $500 for the video graphics, $100 for the RAM, $200 for the power supply, $150 for the cooling, $250 for the data storage and $150 for the case. Which leaves me with $200 for any additional expenses.

Here's what I came up with finally :

Gigabyte P67A-UD7 - $315 ( Newegg )

Intel Core i7-2600K - $315 ( Newegg )

Asus Xonar Essence STX - $190 ( Amazon )

Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX speakers - $150 ( Amazon )

MSI GTX580 Lightning Video Card - $525 ( Newegg )

Noctua NH-D14 cpu cooler - $90 ( Newegg )

G.Skill Ripjaws-X (2 X 4gb) 2133MHz - $100 ( Newegg )

2 X Noctua NF-P12-1300 120mm Case Fans - $50 ( Newegg )

Corsair Performance 3 SSD 64GB - $165 ( Newegg )

Samsung Spinpoint 1 TB HDD - $65 ( Newegg )

NZXT Phantom Black Finish ATX Full Tower - $140 ( Newegg )

Corsair AX-850 850W Power supply - $190 ( Newegg )

TOTAL = $2295

Any comments and suggestions are welcome....

Sounds pretty good to me, but this needs to be posted in the new build advice xD, not the project log.
