Things ill be adding after a year:

Bluray combo drive, maybe another 1tb harddrive and also fan controller just for fun

So there is my pc build I have some question related to my build before I purchased the stuff.

1. Should i go with i5 2500k or save money and buy the i7 2600k still cant decide which one to go for but i dont think ill be running software dat will need hyper threading.

2. Is my power supply too much so should i downgrade to seasonic-x660

3. Is it worthy to buy geforce gtx 560 or should i just downgrade to
geforce gtx 460

4.The ram im buying corsair Vengeance has three types of latency
8-8-8-24, 9-9-9-24, 9-10-9-27 which one is the best from this three

5. My last question is my cpu cooler will be enough if i did an overclock with my cpu just asking because this cooler is preety cheap

I would appreciate every help I can get Thank u

Stay with the 2500k, the price jump does not reflect a great performance increase unless you're specifically using software that really benefits from hyper threading.

PSU is good, don't go lower. I think the 560 is worth the extra price personally.

8-8-8-24 is the faster of the RAM timings you listed, although you won't realistically notice a difference -- don't pay much extra for this if you don't want to.

You'll be quite happy with the hyper 212.

Only other comment is that modern mobo's have pretty decent onboard audio. I always recommend trying out the onboard first, if you find you don't care for it, you can order the sound card after the fact. Just a thought and a way to save some extra money.

As above. 4GB (2X2 ma6tched pair) is more than enough RAM and you avoid any issues with the 4GB sticks.

Onboard sound is also real impressive now. You could hold off on the dedicated card for now and save some more money.
