Default New build, check please?

Hi, new here.

So I've just finished picking out the components for my new build and just wondered if any of you kind people would mind looking over it and making any suggestions.

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz Socket 1155 6MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 Pro Rev 3.0 LGA1155 Intel P67 DDR3 ATX (B3 Stepping)
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 560 OC Edition 1GB 256bit Dual DVI Mini HDMI PCI-E Graphics Card
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
PSU: Corsair TX 650W V2 PSU
Memory: G-Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz Ripjaws Memory Kit CL7(7-8-7-24) 1.6V
Case: Coolermaster Enforcer


My budget is about 750 (~$1200), I already have a monitor, so that doesn't need to be budgeted for.

Thanks.

Hey,

Seems all good, that rig will last you a while.
If you plan on overclocking, you might want to consider an aftermarket cooler, but otherwise don't bother.
Good looking rig.

Cheers

Sandy Bridge is designed for 1.5v RAM, the stuff you picked out it 1.6v. Some people I've seen have 1.6v working just fine...but just to be safe get 1.5v.

maybe you could shell out some more on that gpu or the ram there (gpu upgrade preferred).

Thanks for the advice! Sorry for not getting back sooner, having some internet issues. I'll grab some 1.5v RAM, and maybe look into a GPU upgrade if I have the cash for it.
