Advice on reusing a few old parts in an i5 2500k system

Approximate Purchase Date: 2-4 weeks or so? Could be now as well if I find a good solution

Budget Range: Bang for the buck

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Aim = Running the Inc BF3 and Crysis2 on almost max.
Although will wait with a few parts like graphic card and mechanic hard drives until the games arrives.
Would like to reuse as many parts possible that I have already.

Gaming, movies, 2 desktop screens (1680x1050 x2) and my pioneer 5090h (1920x1080P)

Parts not required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers. Cabinet, dvdr (Below listed the parts I have)

Corsair HX Series 620 Watt would work fine?

2x 750GB Samsung SATAII/7200 HD753LJ – I’m hoping I can use these for a while and later get me a SSD of some kind?

CPU cooler Scythe Mugen Socket 478 / Socket 754 / S

Asus GTX 295 (Placeholder)

Parts Preferences: Asus (Other reviewed brands will do as well)

Parts I’ve been looking at:
I5 2500K
ASUS P8P67 Pro B3 Revision
MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II/OC (SLI)
RAM? Can’t seem to find any G.Skill dealers in my country.
SSD, waiting for next gen to come (might be some price drops)

Country of Origin: Denmark

Over clocking: Yes mid range

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe in the future, just waiting a bit atm. Thinking about a MSI 560ti or maybe two.
Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050, 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I’m uncertain of Mobo and RAM brands and what timings etc they should have.

If the system seems to be to low for my requirements with further investments on graphic card and SSD later then please let me know.

Some info and help is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
