ASUS DRW

Rosewill Challenger Case

SAMSUNG Sinpoint HD

ASUS 1080p monitor

EVGA Superclocked GTX570 1.2MB

ANTEC kickass 750W PSU

GSkill Ripjaw DDR3 1600 memory

Cooler master CPU cooler

Core i5-2500K + a combo MOBO

I have keyboard+mouse.

Total: $1,156.50 before rebates. I thought this was a pretty good deal. Cut down on less necessary component quality while maintaining the core parts. What do you think? Anything you would do differently? Have I covered all required parts for building (it is my first time)? Are all parts compatible?

I am going to purchase this very soon, so please hit me back!

Looks good all parts I would consider, so changing anything would be personal preference!

How overclock-able will this rig be? Will the cooling be okay non OC/yes OC?

I just reread your op, and noticed you already had one, the hyper 212.
You should be well over 4ghz with no problem

It seems it has the worse reviews though! How about this?
MSI P67A-G43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

That MSI is a good board! (I always take newegg reviews with a grain of salt)

the gigabyte one has the small advantage of the z68 features (which you will probably never use). it also comes with an SLI bridge (the cable that connects the two cards for SLI). but, as i have mentioned, id take an 850w psu if you intend to sli gtx 570's. so i think any of those mobos are fine for a single card setup.

***. I already made the purchase. Do you mean with this MB I can't do SLI?

You should have really gone with the Gigabyte board.
