i want to buy a gtx 570 card but i will not have enough money if i buy a k series processor..because i have to buy a p67 motherboard for it and also a cpu cooler which costs more than a h67 mobo and a free stock cooler..will a h67 motherboard will be enough for a 1080pres gaming with my intel i5 2500 processor with my gtx 570 card

gtx 570 kills 1080p gaming at max settings, you should be fine

The difference between the i5 2500 and the i7 2600 is pretty much only hyperthreading. i7 has it. i5 doesnt. Im pretty sure there arnt ANY games that can take advantage of hyperthreading, so an i5 will be more than enough my friend :)  good luck

i5 2500 is probably overkill for 1080p gaming.
