My System Specs

Default

if getting a 2500k and not a 3570k it may be worth looking at z68 or P67 boards rather than z77..
They will probably be a fair bit cheaper and the features you lose are minimal. (pci-e 3.0, Native USB 3.0 would be the main ones)
But you do need to check this for yourself.

Both these chipsets allow you to overclock.

Would also be worth watching the BST section as these parts come up as some people move to Ivy or SB-E.. again saving you money and allowing you to possibly give the GPU a bump
