Its not bad better then most other cheaper choices, I will still go with a 2500 i5 over that.

Yeah for the little extra money you will a whole load of improvment from the 2500. If the 2500 is within your budget then its a no brainer.

Mobo and case are cool, psu is good make, i assume your not looking to crossfire two cards in future, if not then thats fine. How much are you gonna be paying for 6870?

The differences between the Intel® Core™ i5-2500K and the Intel Core i5-2500 come down to just a couple things.
Intel Core i5-2500:
-Support for TXT (Trusted Execution Technology)
-Support for VT-d (virtualization directed I/O)
-Intel HD 2000 Graphics
Intel Core i5-2500K:
-Unlocked multiplier (allows overclocking of the processor)
-Intel HD 3000 Graphics
Now there is about a $ 15 dollars price difference between these processors and with the better graphics for back up the value for the Intel Core i5-2500K is still thought to be worth more than the $15 even if you don’t overclock.

i Know im just letting you know the performance without overclocking. So what im saying is if you have no intention of overclocking just get the 2500, it is very good
