This looks great. There is just one thing that I would recommend changing. Ram. G.Skill is great, however, their Ripjaws series is over rated.
I would try to work this into your budget http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231353

Other than that, this is a great build. The 2500k is great, and the sabertooth is really nice. Also, the gtx 580 is one of the best cards that you can get. And also, if you wouldn't mind, when you get it all, telling me how the g930 is, because I've wanted them for sooo long and want to know if they're worth the money :D

It's not hard at all. It's a very easy cpu to overclock. My friend hit 4.5Ghz stable-ish, and 4.2 completely stable. It's especially easy with the sabertooth because of its fancy bios :p

@Patoooo... Never worry about that... If it's DOA or damaged you will get a replacement....

You wanna know what i've gotta do... I've gotta somehow order my parts and make newegg ship to my hotel in washington (which they wont so i gotta find a way to do that) THEN i have to get my parts, pack them up and ship them to turkey where i live... Life is great right? I'm gona be carryingl ike 30 pounds of weight in pc parts lawl... And that "fragile" sticker doesn't do snap! Then when i get home and try to build it! It happens that the motherboard doesn't work! WOah! awesome! Paying $50 shipping to get a replacement board... and hell! Motherboards here cost like $300! Life's awsum raight?

Anyways on topic: Very good build, And maybe for a psu you might want this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207016&Tpk=xfx%20750w%20modular

Pretty much same efficiency as the Corsair but it's cheaper + made by seasonic (xfx just packages it and writes its name on it)

Your Ram should stick to what it is.... Jrwiz gave you a HELLA EXPENSIVE RAM :O wow lol....

For your mouse wouldn't the logitech g9x be better or the gigabyte gm-m8000x???

Otherwise goodluck, no worries!

Lol altay you beat me. I gotta order it and a friend in Texas to pick it up then drive 600 miles to give them to me. I kind of want to change the PSU cuz it says 1-4 weeks of shipping in Amazon, although I'm not sure if I should change to Newegg.

i think the sabertooth isnt very great because you need to buy another fan on top of its already expensive price for that thermal covering to actually cool. it heat up without it here is a quality gigabyte z68 motherboard- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128494 165$ shipped

the western digital caviar black 1tb is slower than the samsung spinpoint f3 1tb overall and it is much more expensive- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185&Tpk=samsuung%20spinpoint%20f3%201tb 60$

gskill 8gb 1600mhz- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428 gskill makes great ram 60$

mouse- great choice

headset- the one you chose is a little pricey http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CA-HS1ANA-Gaming-Analog-Headset/dp/B004IZN3NY/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1312504155&sr=1-2 this is said to give just as good sound as the g930

gpu- i guess no sli by the looks of your psu- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130626 more powerful card for less

case- for that money you should get a full tower- http://www.amazon.com/SILVERSTONE-RV02B-W-Steel-Tower-Computer/dp/B002M78KZG/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1312504527&sr=1-4 this is a great case at a great price it is 180$ at newegg not including shipping

thermal paste- the hyper 212 plus comes with good paste

psu- http://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-ATX12V-EPS12V-Silver-ST75F-P/dp/B00307RM06/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1312506378&sr=8-1 silver rated fully modular and cheaper

joystick- good choice

cpu- great choice

you can probably afford 2 gtx 560 ti's which are even better than the card i just listed- http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7168004&CatId=3669

You are right, and wrong. The sabertooth. You do not need to buy the fan to make the thermal armor work. It still cools believe it or not, it's like a heat sink basically. And, how is the western digital slower? just asking, but the spinpoint is better (lower price) And the headset is only $99 right now, so, it's def worth it. And also, he could pretty easily sli with a 750w.

I don't plan on SLI because of the power bills and not really needed, one GTX should max or near max almost every game out.

Newegg is not like Amazon or Ebay. It is one provider/dealer. All of the stuff comes from them, directly and completely.(with few exceptions)

gtx 580 sli with 750w???? alone it pulls over 700w of power- http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-580-sli-review/14 . the western digital is faster in some categories and the spipoint is faster in some categories. overall the spinpoint is faster. dont ask me where i got that from i wont be able to find the article. if he wants to spend the extra much money for the logitech brand go ahead, i dont mean that in a demeaning way sorry if it comes across that way. if you look at the sabertooth there is a hole for an 80mm fan. im sorry i didnt choose my words carefully. without it the tuf armor doesnt work well. some people ive talked to said without it it actually heats up the board. they may be wrong though i havent checked many professional reviews.

well if you search form the buy new from you can find the ones sold by amazon itself. they have an impeccable no questions asked return policy and free shipping over 25$. and if you live in places like california and new york there is no taxes!!
