It's only been 2 hrs. Be patient as others will reply soon.
I can't be much help for every part, but I do know you should get an i5-2500k since you might overclock in the future.

See the bad thing with the i5-2500K is that it will put a serious dent in the OP's budget if they need everything including monitor/keyboard/mouse/OS. On that budget the best you could do is an i3-2120 - which in and of itself is a great CPU, but it's not meant for games or any thing of that nature. I'd actually recommend the Phenom II X4 - it's no i5-2500K but it's definitely a good start for a system and one of the best bang-for-buck values on the market.

1.- theres nothing like a cpu made for gaming, theres none.

2.- I3 2100 Is a great Cpu for Gaming. Not For Going Sli or Crossfire. But its great, Its not called the "Sweet Spot" for nothing. More information here : http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-overcloc...
Please Look that They make an honorable Mention for the Phenom X4, But the I3, Outplayed him in all the Games Tittles tested, Even when I3 is a 2 core and the Phenom x4 is a real Quad Core.

3.- True, The i5k will Put a serious Dent in the Op, I think an i3 paired with an h67 Motherboard Would Do the trick. We need to Find the Sweet Spot.
