I'm gonna be ordering the components for my first pc build tomorrow, and would just like some thoughts and questions answered before I do so.
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB Video Card
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus ATX Mid Tower Case

Optical Drive: Sony DDU1681S-0B DVD/CD Drive

First question: Is is worth overclocking the i5 2500k when I get it to around 4.0ghz for gaming, is it easy for a beginner like me to do?
2nd: Does it look like a good pc build to play games like battlefield 3 on high settings?
3rd: Is the graphics card worth getting in ghz edition or should i just get it in standard, and if I do, should it be MSI, Asus or Sapphire? is the standard one also good for playig battlefield 3 on high settings?
