Intel i5 2500k Overclocked (over 4)
GTX 570 (Later upgrade to SLI)

My options are:

Original ASUS® P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3: PCI-E 3.0 READY, SLI, CROSSFIREX £143.00

or

New Item ASUS® SABERTOOTH P67 (NEW REV 3.0): USB 3.0, SATA 6.0GB/s, THERMAL ARMOR! £135.00


Power Supply:
CORSAIR 850W ENTHUSIAST SERIES™ TX850 V2-80 PLUS® BRONZE

If i overclock the GPU and PSU, can the processor handle it?

also, is this cooler enough?

the 2500k can handle any gfx card available today. your cpu and gfx card will play nicely together.

get the z68 board.
the CPU is more than enough for a gtx570. it is nice even for 2xgtx580.

get a better cooler for the CPU. a very budget minded option is coolermaster hyper 212+. it can easily take your 2500k to 4.5ghz.
