Hmmm,
I know that CPU/RAM/MOBO's do get along together with a little help from a good matchmaker but I have no clue what one of those or combination thereof you are considering
More info please

ps: check your links

That combination should work very well, you'll need a new operating system though. You will also want to install an aftermarket cooler before attempting to overclock the CPU
I do feel obliged to ask - any particular reason for choosing the Sandy Bridge/Z68 combo over an Ivy Bridge/Z77 combo?

I'm going to push Ivy Bridge here then. You're looking at very little (if any) price difference SB 2500k $214 IB 2550k $224
Ivy Bridge does perform better than Sandy Bridge. Both of the processors shown are 'k' model processors, the 'k' signifying that the CPU is unlocked so the CPU multiplier can be increased through overclocking. Both the Z68 and Z77 chipsets support overclocking. I can't do a direct mobo comparison since it appears EVGA does not make a uATX motherboard but here is a Z77 board with (I believe) similar features http://www.amazon.com/LGA1155-Z77-CrossFireX-Motherboar...
The ram can remain the same.
An aftermarket heatsink is a highly recommended addition if wanting to overclock your processor. Overclocking produces a lot of heat which must be disipated to keep the CPU cool enough to prevent thermal throttling or even shut down. A cooler like this CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO (which probably won't fit your case) is very popular and effective. That can also wait until you are ready to overclock.
Hope I helping more than confusing
