If I won't be overclocking...should I still get the i5-2500K and a Z68 mobo?
or stay with i5-2400 with h61 mobo?

the GPU would be 7870...(btw this is also a non-oc version)
my target is actually 7850 but since it's out of stock, I had to get the 7870...

would i5-2400+H61mobo+7870 be fine?
I'm just afraid it might hang up on me....

on NO OC, which is better performance wise?

Intel SB quad @3.4Ghz - rather solid chip wink.gif I say keep it, I really doubt you'll see any bottlenecks whatsoever, even with a more powerful card.
