  1. You will be able to play all of your games on high to max detail with good framerates.
  2. You should get the 2500K. Overclocking it is easy, safe and highly economical.
  3. Could you play your games at max? NO! But can you play those games in high? Yes, probably. Your GPU isn't that powerful to play BF3, and Crysis in max settings. You would want to get something like HD 7850 or GTX 660 to play your current games at max settings.
  4. What resolution do you plan on playing at?
  5. Personally I'd spend a bit extra and get the "k" cpu.....and as for the graphics card you can get a geforce 650TI for about the same money, and it's more powerful. I'm not sure what you need in a hard drive, but I'm partial to a WD black, and I don't think I'd ever buy a traditional hard drive less than 1TB any more. If you could get away with an SSD, do it and skimp somewhere else, thats an extremely noticeable speed upgrade.

    I don't think you will run any current games on max or high with that graphics card....

    Also, the speed of your ram will not make any difference when compared to the graphics card, so don't worry about that too much.

    Good luck
