How much of a performance gain from your previous system? A lot lol.

One question, why get a 212 hyper if you're not going to get into overclocking?

Also, you are aware that the H61 lacks features, such as USB 3.0 and SATA III?

Nekulturny is right, no need for the 212 if you're not overclocking, the standard cooler will be fine.

If you're not going to be using any USB 3 devices and aren't getting a SATA 3 SSD, then you'll be fine with H61.

Otherwise you'll be fine on BF3 at that resolution.

^As they note, you can get USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gb/s even with cheaper H67 (and some H61) boards. This may not matter much now, but when you get a SATA 6Gb/s SSD (and eventually you will), it will make a difference.

Ill be doing a bit mild overclocking like from 3.1 ghz to 3.4 or 3.5,but not extreme.If i go for the core i5 2500k,i will definitely overclock,so here im confused :

1.Go for i5 2500k and spend a bit more.

2.Can you suggest a good motherboard having usb3.

3.How will the 6870 perform against gtx 560ti.

4. and lastly any suggestions for a completely new build would be realy good as i doubt that this build would be less future proof.

Thanks

1.You cant overclock a 2400. The "k" at the end of the numbers denotes overclockability in the Core series, Black Edition denotes this for AMD. Honestly, unless you do something entirely insane with the voltage settings, theres very little risk in frying a chip from overclocking these days. If you're still worried, Intel does offer for 20 bucks with a 2500k a one time replacement for a fried chip. Go ahead and spend the extra couple bucks for the 2500k if you want, otherwise, I'd downgrade to a Phenom II, since you can overclock that and get the same performance of the more expensive 2300/2400.

2. Certainly. I can recommend a couple at varying price points:

Better-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $122
Good- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $105
Adequate- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $90

3. About the same, maybe slightly better with the 560 TI

4. Nothing wrong with your build choice as it is, just a little tweaking is all.
