The intel is the stronger build , but its not optimal .

The K processor is for overclocking and your mb can overclock . Either match that processor to a Z68 or Z77 chipset motherboard , or replace the processor with a i5 3550

The kingston hyper X blue is either 1333 Mhz or its volyage is too high . You need 1.5 volt or less RAM . 1600 Mhz is ideal

Get the Antec 300 two . Front USB 3 ports , better cable management

green hard drives are dumb. They save very little power , but slow loading and boot times a lot .

The 560 ti is now last generation . The radeon 7850 is a bot more expensive but a lot better
