i figure since its going to cost me over $700 to upgrade to what i want, might as well get a new computer for bout $1000. i priced one out at ibuypower.com and it came to $1134. so i'm going to wait till black friday/cyber monday to see if theres a sale. either on this one or something like it. either way i've got my mind set on the i5-2500k cpu and 560ti vid card.
i'm not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to computers so any help would be appriciated.
is there anything that looks out of place or is garbage?
is there any where i can go cheaper?
should i get the CPU overclocked 10% ($19), 20%($49) or not at all?
i'd like it to play swtor at max or close to it, and a few others over time. thanks for you time and input.

If you are getting a PC with the 2500K, then you should be able to OC it yourself when you get it. It is very, VERY easy to do. No use paying someone else to do it for you. It all looks okay, and will certainly game for a while. Only way you are going to go cheaper is to probably build it yourself.
