The i5 2500k is a great overclocker, though if you ever want to upgrade to a PCIe 3.0 card you'd be out of luck, as you don't have a Ivy Bridge, and the new chipset is coming out next year though that doesn't really matter I suppose. Overall a good system though I'd recommend going with a EVGA GTX 670 FTW if you can fork over the extra $100 or so, and get rid of something somewhere else as the 600 series is backwards-compatible.

by "out of luck" do you mean it will plug right in and there will be no performance penalty or other issues?

Nope. Definitely meant he couldn't use the PCIe 3.0 bandwidth when PCIe 2.0 gets filled, as the 2500k is a Sandy Bridge. 3.0 requires Ivy Bridge is all.

Anyways, as for the SSD Kingston has their HyperX 3K series on sale, 90GB for $90, $70 after rebate, and their 120GB for $120, $90 after rebate.

Difference between 2.0 vs. 3.0 is nothing, in real life, 0%.

Atm, you are right, but not everyone is upgrading to Haswell next year. It is good for those people.
