  1. Hello daniel2011;

    We don't usually think of using a i5 2500K as skimping on CPU power.
    And you certainly aren't skimping on the monitors. Or PSU and CPU cooler.
  2. A few things I could suggest:

    RAM: DDR3 1600 CL9 RAM
    PSU: 500W~550W sized for 1 HD 5770 and CPU overclocking plus future upgrades like a SSD, 2nd HDD and a larger single video card replacement.
    CPU cooler: Thermaltake Frio OCR CPU Cooler - Review or even the Gelid Tranquillo CPU Cooler - Review
