If you're going to overclock then the mobo 'matters' (not that it doesn't matter, it just matters more) if you're not, then just get whatever you like if you've got a brand preference or like the colors of one. Hard drive doesn't really matter, get a cheap one that has the capacity you need and is a 7200rpm drive, make sure it's sataII though. Writer, just buy the cheapest one, if it's OEM it might not come with a sata cable. Case, whatever you like, totally up to you.

if you want to oc down the road, youll want to think about getting an aftermarket hsf as well, which may also necessitate getting a better mb now.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P67A-D3-B3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
I'd take this P67 over an H67 if you're going to be overclocking.

I would not buy the board Jason posted. You have a 2500K so you'll want a P67 mobo, the H67 is a non-overclocking version.

This mobo is only $122.99 after a rebate.

Newegg.com - ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
