I have been putting together a list at newegg.com and am wondering if people could look over it and make sure everything is compatible. Also I don't know what size power supply I would need or what type of cpu cooling system. This would be my first build so if I left out any components please let me know. So I would appreciate any help on that. Also could you please rate how this system is for gaming use.

Note: I know I have not added the DVD/CD/BR Rom Drives yet. Still deciding on that.

The i5-2400 would be pretty much the same (maybe max 5% difference) for gaming. It would also save you a lot of money. Also 8GB RAM isnt necessary for games yet so you could also save money there if you want. As for a PSU i would get a 550-600W modular PSU.

That cpu has integrated graphics...does that matter if I was to use a discrete card? also it says combine with h67 chipset so im guessing i would have to change the motherboard as well?

I was told that the "K" means that it could be overclocked. If it has turbo boost to 3.7ghz then what is the max OC speed to keep that stable?

The max for one of those cpu's is 5.7ghz. With that Asus board up there I'm going to take a wild guess and say 4.6 - 4.8ghz tops which isn't a bad o/c at all.
