This goes above the sanity threshold in a couple of places.
-2500K is barely worse than the 2600K, and costs much less. There's very little gaming difference, and it certainly won't bottleneck your GPU.
-You don't need more than 8gb of RAM.
Also, why do you have a separate normal HDD for booting? If there's a good reason, please tell me, because I've never heard of a boot drive that wasn't any faster than the other drive(s).

well i talked to a few computer building enthusiasts and they said it would be better for longer.
will my selected processor bottle neck the graphics card?

and for the ram i originally had it as 8 but it changed uhm could you suggest some good brands for the ram?

and as for the hdd idk i just heard it was better to keep them separate and had no clue about it but i think i am just going to stick with one hard drive
