Default NEW BUILD 2500k i5 Need help Buying things!

NEW BUILD 2500k i5 Need help Buying things!
I am doing a new build... I have three options that i'm considering. Please let me know which one you think is best and why.

option 1. Buy individual combo deals as follows:

($329) i5-2500k & MSI P67A-G43 CPU/MOBO Combo
(109.99) HAF 912 & RS650 650watt coolermaster CASE/PSU Combo
(64.99) Samsung f3 1tb hdd
(20.99) LG DVD Burner
I still need to figure out ram ~$60
TOTAL: $584

Option 2. Newegg combo ($576.49)
raidmax helios case
gigabyte ga-p67a-ud3 mobo
raidmax 630watt psu
intel i5 2500k
corsair vengeance 4gb
segate 1tb hdd
liteon dvdrw
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboB...t=Combo.634266


Option 3. Newegg combo ($539)

rosewill challenger case
msi p67a-c43
antec 650w psu
i5 2500k
g.skill ripjaws 4gb
segate 1tb hdd
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboB...t=Combo.634263


I plan on installing my corsair h50 cpu watercooler in whatever case I buy, so it will need to fit.

I also plan on buying a hd 6950 or maybe just keeping it cheap and buying maybe a gtx460 in that price range. idk.

Thanks,

Ben
