yes this is what i'm looking for now. Cheapest I found for everything was about 480$. Will keep looking at sales.

Next step will be a new GPU and PSU but that might take a year... depends of work.

Thanks to you all!

Just remember that some H87 motherboards will allow overclocking, but I read intel may be locking that out in the future. So a z87 and k processor are required for overclocking. Without both your better off saving the few $ and going for a cheaper motherboard and a non k CPU IMO.
