  1. Get a P68 or Z68 motherboard otherwise, you won't be able to overclock the 2500K. Also ditch the sound card & use onboard sound, get rid of the network card and use the onboard networking. Spend the savings on a 560-Ti graphics card. Also, which CM PSU are you geting? Not all CM psu's are recommended. I suggest something from the Corsair, Seasonic, PCP&C, or Antec lines with a 750 watt rating.
