1TB WD black HDD
GSkill Ripjaws 8GB ddr3
ASROCK extreme 4 lga 1155 mobo

I think a 600W will be more than enough, i don't have any experience with the suggested PSU.

why buy a i5/3570k if you´re not going to overclock it?

Im not going to overclock it, but it seems like the best cpu for my budget? Is there another option, my budget for a cpu is around $230.

I don't how much the normal i5-3570 vs the i5-3570k costs but in my country (Netherlands) the price difference is about 20$ and if you are not going to overclock they perform the same. you can even overclock the non-k model a little bit in the future.
