since i did double post ............
maybe if you got some $$$ left we can recommend a good sound card.......it will really add something to your experience

dont worry your onboard (the 892) is very good , just maybe

I agree with crag about the GPU, nothing wrong with it, but i think it makes the rig a little out of balance with so much cpu and so little gpu. Also that mobo only has one pic-e 16 slot, so no multi gpu later. Maybe one of these instead:

You want a different mobo if you're planning on ocing that 2500k.

Better Hard Drive Deal: Samsung F3 1TB...that extra cache and Gb/s is not going to do very much for you.

Might be able to get a decent motherboard bundle at Microcenter with that CPU. Check the sales.

Everything else is fine. GPU is decent too.

The GPU is great for 1080p, at the moment you don't need anything more (Though people here will tell you otherwise). You can always CF if you feel that you need more power (which is completely beast).

As others said you'll need a better board for OCing:

Hmm what do you guys think would be the best mobo then? Also what gpu do you think would be better?

EDIT: What would be a cheaper and better case as well?

This is a good budget P67 mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138317
I suggested it because it supports both crossfire and sli, and costs US$140

You can get a CM 690II for 78 dollars at JR electronics or 89 dollars at amazon. I did research for my 800 dollar build and everyone said the CM 690 II was much better than storm scout.
