Your computer is only as good as its weakest component, sadly that is your motherboard, while it is great that you have the GTX 680 for the gaming graphics, your motherboard is going to overheat like no other unless you do north and south bridge cooling, i've always been a fan of the ASUS sabertooth series as they offer amazing motherboard cooling, stock cooling i've got my Core i5 2500k at 4.2 GHz. i'm sure if you add yourself a decent chip cooler you'd be able to get it up to 4.8-4.9 range, and why stay on the P67 series when the Z77 chipset came out? if you're going the full shabang with the graphics card, you need the processor power to go with it. i'd start looking at the Z77 boards if i were you

EDIT: but everything else on your computer seems good. make sure your SSD is SATA III and your HDD is 7200 RPM and SATA III

You don't need a hot-shot motherboard to overclock to 4.5. Any old oc-capable mobo will do.

But if that's as far as you're going to overclock, you ought to go with an ivy bridge i5-3570k. It's a better CPU. You can pick up a good 1-gpu mobo for $110:

Or a 2-gpu mobo for $135:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130645

Your PSU is tremendous overkill. You could get a much cheaper one if you're not planning to SLI in the future.

It is not a better CPU. If at all, it is the exact same as an i5-2500k.
Read www.techradar.com/reviews/pc-mac/pc-components/processors/intel-core-i5-3570k-1077183/review/

I've read the reviews, thanks. And it's clear that at the same clocks, the ivy bridge is superior. Not to mention that in a game important to me (the Total War series) ivy bridge is vastly superior to sandy bridge:

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2012/04/23/intel-core-i7-3770k-review/7

Sandy Bridge is only equivalent or better if clocked higher. It may have more potential for higher overclocks, but for the average user it is simply inferior (not by much) to ivy bridge.

Now of course it would be silly for a sandy bridge owner to upgrade. But this thread is about a new processor. The OP mentioned overclocking to 4.5ghz, which the reviewers managed to reach fairly easily with ivy bridge. Hence ivy bridge is a superior processor.

Since when do 1155 boards overheat? They don't even have a north bridge btw. I had that board there were no heat issues. Op I would at least get z68. It can come in handy having onboard graphics.
