Looking to spend less than $400 dollars, and this is what I came up with.

PSU:Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W Continuous @40°C,80 PLUS Certified, Single 12V Rail, Active PFC "Compatible with Core i7,i5" Power Supply ($59.99)

CPU: Intel i5-2500k ($219.99)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mobo:ASUS P8H67-M PRO/CSM (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard ($114.99)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm under the belief that the H67 boards can't OC, but the Hardware Secrets review shows off the overclocking for that board? I don't think I'll plan on OCing, but for $10 more I might as well allow myself the option in the future.

It fits within my budget, gives me everything that I need and then some, but I just wanted to make sure that all of my parts will play nice and that I'm not buying quality parts(I know the CPU is good, but the rest I'm not sure about). I don't plan on SLI/Crossfiring, I'm using a midtower(Hence why the microATX motherboard), and I need the 4 ram bays.
