Oh mighty brainstrust lend me your knowledge

i want do do a very basic upgrade on my lackluster PC but am not right up on compatability and specs etc.
i have decided all i really need is a cpu motherboard and a new case i have chosen:

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Motherboard
Intel Core i5 2500K
CoolerMaster CM 690 II USB3.0 Advanced

anyone had any experience with any of these and will they work together well or should i be aiming for something different?

    Yes they work together , but they wont help gaming performance much [ and maybe not at all ]

    For trhat you need a better graphics card

    and unless your RAM runs at 1.5 volt you'd need to replace that too
  2. yes the graphics cards will be a later upgrade but i know what i want there and yes i am using 8gb 1.5v 1600mHz ram atm it's the aforementioned items im not sure on especially the case as it has been a long time since i have upgraded that and i would like one that will be fairly future proof for my needs
