Processor- Intel core i5 2500k
Ram- 2 G.Skill Rip jaws 8gb 1600 (12800CL9D) 2x4

Any suggestion is welcome.

Oh sorry I forgot to include it in the list so here it is: Inno 3d gtx 560 256 bit. I dont need an optical drive because I already have one, As for the psu I dont know what to choose. Can you help me choose a good psu for sli?

Thanks for the suggestion but I cant find the asrock extreme 3 gen 3 here in the Philippines.:( 
Can the asrock extreme 4 gen 3 be a substitute for that?

you are going to love your choice of motherboard and cpu

i have the original asrock extreme 4, not gen 3. ive gone as high as 5.1 ghz, and could probably go further but am only concerned about volts and heat. i run my system @ 4.9ghz 24/7 only rebooting every few weeks for windows updates. no bluescreens, no resets. no problems. i also got to use the cpu cooler off my old socket 775 build, because asrock boards have the mounting holes for several different sockets. im very pleased to say the least. i cant directly vouch for gen3 but ive heard good things.

cheers and good luck!

For a 560 non-ti, a 550W PSU will be just fine. I recommend XFX or Seasonic brands.

Get a Corsair AX850. You'll have plenty of extra power :D
