Yes it will all work fine. You won't be able to upgrade to SLI due to PSU restraints but if you weren't planning on it that's not a bad setup. Should be able to play on high to max settings on most games.

This is a slightly better HDD for $5 less with the same capacity.

And if it's in your budget I would highly recommend adding an SSD for OS and frequently played/used games and apps.

You could save some money short-term by not getting windows 7 and installing the Windows 8 release preview until 8 is officially launched.

I'm doing the Windows 8 RP myself. >_>

I personally prefer Ivy Bridge, but a lot of others around here will denounce me as a "Gaming Kid" apparently so I'll let you be with the 2500K. Nice setup.

Definitely get an SSD, chop something unimportant somewhere, and get the $90, $70 MIR 90GB Kingston HyperX 3k, OR $120, $90 MIR 120GB Kingston HyperX 3k.
