    *since you want to overclock and get the i5-2500K - this would be a great overclocking system - keep your Radeon HD 5770 for now (it's still a good card), then upgrade little down the road to a better and newer generation (single card)

    Damn fine build if I do say so myself. Nets you a quad core and a 560 Ti, while still keeping a quality case and 8GB of ram.
    -The i5-2400 offers the same level of performance as the 2500k, just without the option to overclock. Even if you get a 2500k, your system will be severely bottlenecked by the 5770. This 560 Ti will give anywhere from 1.8x-2.0x the performance.
