Hello, I'd like to get some comments on a new build I plan on putting together. The computers main use would be gaming. I will be doing some OCing, especially the processor.

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W

ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

EVGA 012-P3-1571-KR GeForce GTX 570 HD

Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92

My main question was with the Motherboard, I figured the Gen3 board would be cool for some future-proofing. I wasn't sure though if I should bother upgrading the Z68 chipset. The power supply is probably overkill, but better safe than sorry.

I wouldn't get the KR gtx 570, get the AR version
KR has a lesser warranty
