Cut down on the RAM to 4GB DDR3 1333, as i5 2500k doesnt support 1600 and games never use more than 3gb. Also, cut down on the GPU and get a GTX460 superclocked as when it is overclocked, the performance difference is minimal. And get a Z68MA which is a mATX mobo and around 100 USD which is around 80 euros. Hope this helps. :)

The i5 2500k doesn't support anything higher than 1333MHz, although the Z68 Motherboard can force the CPU into running speeds above that. :)
