Raptors are fast, but SSD will still improve your OS speeds, applications and games during load times. So if you upgrade, Motherboard, CPU, GTX 560 and SSD are all good upgrades. Not sure you will see much of a performance boost over the i7 you had, but i7 2600K is good.

for the mobo im thinking about betwen ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME SOCKET 1155 REV 3 and EVGA Z68 FTW
for the processor i7 2600k (probably will buy Corsair H70 but for now i will use the Thermalright 120 Extreeme)
for the memory 16GB GSKILL SNIPER DDR3 2133MHZ (7-7-8-24) (4x4GB)
