Is Your Processor The K Version? i mean, i5-2500K or Just i5-2500! Because only the K Version Overclocks!

Edit: Now i would go for The Asus Board! ( Just Noticed It Was The PRO Version )

You should have got the K version if u wanted to overclock! Your choice really!

Anyways, i would prefer the Asus Board! Sorry, I just didnt notice that you meant the PRO version of that board!

So, you prefer more to Asus product then gigabyte.

I've think, i should change my new spec for new cpu based on your suggestion.

Processor: Intel Core I5 2500k
Mobo: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO
Ram: Team Elite 4G 1333
Graphic Card: ASUS GTX560 DCII OC DDR5 1GB 256BIT
Psu: C.M GX 650W
Hdd: W.D 1TB 64MB
Dvd: Sony 24x

Is it ok?

That Is A Nice Rig! And Yeah, You Can Add An SSD If You Have The Money! But Not Neccessary!

@badtaylorx:-
And That is not a corsair PSU, Its A Cooler Master GX 650W, Which Is 80 Plus Gold Certified! Its One Heck Of A PSU!

I like Asus Z68 motherboards for the fact that even the basic V is sufficient and all inclusive, while Gigabyte you need a UD4 minimum to reap any performance.

I hazard to think that Intel missed a trick by not making all SB overclockable. If you buy the 2500K I must say, buy big, the bottlenecking with a GTX 560 is ridiculous. A high end processor requires only high end components, if you don't OC, save bucks on a 2400 rather, it is more the equal of the 2500k in gaming scenarios.
