Just wanted someone to look over my build and see that everything is good. I'm not planning to overclock at the moment so that's why I didn't include a CPU cooler. So let me know what you guys think! Any recommendations or criticism welcome.(Already have a case and hard drives)

Microcenter will give you $50-60 off a Z68 or P67 Motherboard with the purchase of your 2500k.

I bought my Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 for 109.99 when I bought my 2500k there. Much better motherboard than the ASRock Extreme 3 Gen 3. Mine booted first try and had all the options I wanted to OC mine very easily. Mine is running perfectly stable.

Oh really? How does it work? Do I just add a motherboard to the cart with the i5?

Well it depends on your budget. The 6950 is cheaper (sometimes) and better performance.
