  2. Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

    You don't need pay extra for the Z68 chipset, get a P67 chipset that can give you very similar performance for less price. The RAM is crap, go with Corsair Vengeance or G.Skill Ripjaws.What budged do you have for GPU? A single GTX 580 or GTX 560 SLI are excellent combination for that i7-2600k but if you want save more money and still have excellent performance the i5-2500k is a very good option.
