how much is the budget? you shouldnt get a i5 2500k if you are on a budget. a i3 can perform almost as well

if you have a micro center you can get a deal on the ib chips and motherboards. if you swap the 2500k out for the 3450 or the locked cpu you shave some money without hurting the just have locked speed.
