Default Need help with new build

I am going to buy a complete new build probably during the beginning of the new year.

Here is what I have in mind.

Intel Core i5 2500K
Gigabyte ATI 6970 OC 2G
Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3
Thermaltake VN300M1W2N Chaser MK-I
Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
Corsair TX-750 ATX Power Supply
Western Digital 1TB SATA3 64M(WD1002FAEX)

1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.
Gaming such as FPS and RPG

2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread
1300-1500 AUD

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.

4. IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy, nVidia-Fanboy, Seagate-Fanboy, WD-Fanboy, etc, etc, etc, you get the picture.

5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.
All brand new

6. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.
I plan to overclock in the future when I save up to buy decent cooling

8. WHEN do you plan to build it?
Beginning of the new year

9. What resolution do you use?

The questions that I have is how good quality is the build of the motherboard such as how good its overclocking abilities and will the 2500k bottleneck the video card.
I would like your input about this build.

Cheers Steve
