Not sure if it makes a diference, but i plan on using my 42" 1080 sony tv instead of a monitor.

Since you have an after market cooler listed, Id just spend the extra $15 and get the 2500k and overclock it a bit.

I wasnt planning on overclocking for reliablity reasons, but i'll get it in case i change my mind in the future. probably get the caviar black instead as well.

And just to answer your question, that gpu will easily work with your screen (: also just wondering, any reason you didnt go with the i5 3570k ivy bridge? Im getting a new system soon and i was gonna get a 3570k but if theres a good reason not to then ill stay away from it.
