  1. The 570 will kick ass but get P67 or Z68 not H series.
  2. No dont, get your 2nd specification, as you will not need a P or Z68 board for a i5 2500 as it cant be OCd, just stick with those 2nd specs as there just about perfect for gaming and lots of other tasks, the i5 2500 is more than powerfull enough to not be a bottlekneck for a gtx570 in fact it could happily run 2 x gtx580 in SLI and not bottlekneck.

    So to confirm, your 2nd specs are perfect to run all games at max for 1080p resolutions. The only addition i would add is to still buy a coolermaster hyper 212 just to keep your cpu nice and cool while keeping system noise to a minimum.
