Builing new computer $600- $800

I'm looking to build a new computer that can run these games. DoTA 2, Diablo III, Skyrim and World of Warcraft.

My current graphics/video card is EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card here's a link http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625. A new video card can be bought if necessary.

I think a i5 2500k core processor will be enough to run these games but if you think otherwise let me know!

I'm looking for opinions on what Motherboard, processor, RAM, power supply and any extra fans I should be looking into. Pretty much a whole new PC build! I would like to hear your opinions on what to get!! Thank you for your time it will be much appreciated!!

  1. That is quite a low budget for a 2500k build. I'll do my best!
  2. You should be able to slip in under $800, especially since the GPU doesn't count in that.
  3. Do you need an OS?
    Or can you salvage any parts from your old computer? (Optical Drive, HDD, etc.)
  4. +1 to Kelthic's build. (Although, you may need an optical drive.)
    Also, I recommend changing that RAM to the Ripjaws which I have linked below.
    If you don't want to up your budget you may as well save your current card.

    Here's a build in case you decide to expand your budget. ($950)
