I am a total newbie so I am open to any suggestions and all help is greatly appreciated.
Firstly, will there be any compatibility issues?
I'm shopping from Ireland so Ebay seems to be my best bet.
Also, I do realize that I don't have a case. What should I look for in a case? Any suggestions?
Anything my system is missing? I'm going to skim on the dvd drives for now, as I make absolutely no use out of them.
Is there anywhere I could shave off some $$$?
Also do you think that my motherboard bundle is an overkill? I want a system which I can handle graphics upgrades in the future without bottle necking.
Don't be too harsh on me if I have forgotten something vital! :pt1cable: 

Motherboard bundle:

GPU:

I am not willing to spend more on these particular items unless a slight price increase will lead to a substantial gain in power.

For gaming, you are not getting a good deal. Both the MOBO&CPU bundle and GPU are overkill and underkill, respectively. Get an i5-2500k+Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 and a Radeon 6870.

i5-2500k: http://www.ebay.ie/itm/INTEL-Core-i5-2500K-3-3GHz-6-MB-...

Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 ASRock MOBO: http://www.ebay.ie/itm/NEW-ASRock-Z68-Extreme3-Gen3-Mot...

GPU: http://www.ebay.ie/itm/XFX-Radeon-HD-6870-2GB-DDR5-Fant...

$100 cheaper than your choices. :) 

For $100 more, you can get http://www.ebay.ie/itm/NEW-Asus-ATI-Radeon-7850-HD7850-...
It is MUCH faster than the GTX 560 or the Radeon 6870. :)
