I don't see an optical drive or operating system. What about keyboard, mouse, speakers?

First thing that comes to mind when looking at the parts is

A

Locked CPU and a P series board. Get the MSI one to shave off some cash and spend it on the 2500k

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

B
1600MHz memory, 8gb on top of that. Why? You're on a budget, 8gigs are not something you'd need at this pricepoint, except when you're trying to run some serious tasking background applications which is very doubtful. The difference in performance between the 1333 and 1600 makes the extra cash on ram not worth it.

So, pick some 4gb 1333 kit instead

Out the top of my head, that's pretty much a good idea for part modification on the build, not counting the horrible caviar blue main drive option and the somehow outdated 460 GTX

10% off with promo code PCPowerAug, ends 8/22
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Video card - If SLI is doubtful, then why not get this one with the money saved on the mobo+ CPU combo?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Monitor - Get one with faster response time,.... 8 ms might lead to ghosting when playing race games/ playing videos
