If you opt for the i5, need swap out the motherboard too [Socket-2011]
You normally want to wait just before a new CPU line drops. This is when you'll see retailers put the last line on sale with some dramatically reduced prices. Grab last year's top-of-the-line stuff on the cheap and let other people worry about teething problem when it comes to new tech.
With regards to your shopping list, I'd replace the i7 with an i5-2500K. On most of the reviews I've read, it offers the best bang for the buck. I'd stay away from Seagate and get a Western Digital 2TB Black Edition but that's my own personal opinion - I've had horrible experiences with Seagate.
