Depends on the resolution you will be using, for a standard 20ish inch monitor that will be run at 1920 resolution, something from the mid-range will be just fine http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car...

If you have the budged go for the higher range of mid or lower high range cards from that article, that way can ensure you will have a viable system for high quality graphics for several years.

You can't go wrong with a 560ti, does wonders at 1080p gaming and its still reasonably priced.

Can't go wrong? If his resolution is 1680x1050 and has a $100 budget for a gpu, or if he's running more than one display and has higher budget, then the 560ti isn't for him.

For 1080p and ~$250 budget he will be happy with the 560ti, but will be better served with the HD 7850.

yes, the cpu would be fine at all, but those manufacturer uses cheap materials in the construction of those mobo's that is why they are so cheap, less lifespan and when it's turn to OVERCLOCKING there it will become a risky and a dangerous situation. so change it?

also your cpu will get into the trouble too.

do not use H61,H67,B65,B75 chipsets for I5 or i7 cpu's and where you have k series model use z68 or z77 chipset.

Prices taken from Newegg (with rebate):

$320 - Either HIS IceQ HD 7870 or MSI Twin-Frozr HD 7870.

$360 - Either XFX Double D 7950 or MSI Twin-Frozr 7950.

$400 - Gigabyte GTX 670.

Although after the recent patch and at current prices the 7950 would be my top pick.

I believe that B75, B77 are chipsets that are optimized for business models. And decent Z77 / Z68 have better components and allow overclocking.

I know that this is off topic but could you suggest a reasonably priced mobo? (around the same price)

Well i did not know my motherboard selection should be based on weather i overclock or not. Now that i know, I chose the k series in case I needed the overclocking to run games smoother. Should i need to overclock, then i would purchase a heat sink. What do you think? Would i need to overclock?

hmm, it's up to you, if you want overclock then i think you should increase your budget upto $200 for best mobo, i5 3570k at stock speed maxing out every games with decent frame rates but overclocking gives you about 25% more better performance.

yes, if you do overclock then you must need an aftermarket cooler like hyper 212 evo about $30's.

OK, how does this sound. I buy the better motherboard and still buy the k series. I don't plan to overclock yet. If i need to overclock I will buy the cooler and go ahead with the overclocking.
