My System Specs

Default

Unless your dead set on 2011, a 3770k will outperform the 3820. They clock similarly and 3770 will give slightly better peformance per clock, be cooler and draw less power.

I know you can drop a chip in for an upgrade with 2011 but these cpu's tend to hold their value so that by the time you want an upgrade you can get a new platform for the price of an older chip.
Just a suggestion.. as said price and performance will be very very close.

If you want to save a bit.. the H60 cooler is a great performer at a bit less than the H80. (I believe it has an easier mounting system too)

Otherwise all looks good.. Enjoy :)
