For $750 you can make a high-end system.

Case and PSU look meh, and I personally don't like Seagate.

I'd stick with the 2500k and a decent P67 motherboard (like the Gigabyte UD3), then add a good 4gb kit like Gskill or Corsair, a GTX460 (or AMD equivalent, if you find a good deal), and a good 500w PSU, like an Antec or a Seasonic. Add a decent CPU cooler like the Hyper 212+, a new hard drive (I'd personally go with a Western Digital caviar blue/black, you choose how big), a sata DVD drive and of course a good case.
I suppose that a new monitor would also be good

Where you can save money:
- Do you care about overclocking? If not, grab a H67 motherboard with a non-K i5. There is also good number of decent mATX H67 motherboards, and high quality mATX cases tend to cost less (guess why, because the case is smaller! /captain obvious). Beware that a non-K CPU and a H67 mobo will not let you overclock in ANY way.
- Don't try to save by getting a cheapo PSU.
- If WDs are quite more expensive than Samsungs or Seagates, then get one of these two. I generally recommend WDs because of their incredible customer support and warranty, some people go with Samsungs because their fast HDDs are said to perform slightly better than the blacks (I personally care more about warranty than slight performance increases or 0.5% difference of global failure rate, this depends on your priorities)..
