  1. Looks good if you plan on running just one video card; get at least 750w for the ps if you ever plan to add a second card.
  2. For overclockers, I'm of the opinion the 2500K is the better choice..

    As far as anything else, I think you could do a little better in a video card than a 560 TI, but no it wont be horrible.. I'd consider stepping up to a Radeon 7850 or a GTX 570, in which case you'd no longer have a "mid level" build, you be fairly well on your way to high end.
