2500K will not work in that motherboard. You will need a socket 1155 motherboard, and to be able to overclock you will need a P67 or Z68 motherboard. Depending on your budget I would get one of these depending on budget. With Z68 you get the ability to use onboard graphics, SSD caching "Intel Smart Response Technology", and Lucid Virtu- which I would guess the majority of the people don't use. I have a Z68 board and never once used any of the extra features.
