Hyper 212+ EVO or Noctua D14 - $35/$90

GSkill 1600 8GB (2x4) MEMORY - $50-$60

Gigabyte or Asrock Z68 GEN 3 MoBo - $150

the things these replace are not up to par with everything else in your rig. Also, if you aren't going to OC, stock HSF with the i5 2500k is plenty.

Before i forget, if you need storage, SSD's are a waste of money in my opinion. I think you could get 2-4 7200rpm HDD's for roughly the same price, and see almost the same performance (nothing you would notice if it were slower) and increase your memory 10 fold.
