Default Computer system build review Please !! This is my first home-made build.

I am going to use it for school work (coding n stuff), movies, some games and graphics work. I think I wont OC (i5 2500 was just 10$ less). Not that much games, more of programs like photoshop, matlab, and few video editing stuff. Budget around 500$. I have been looking through reviews, price and came up with this:

1. Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K
2. GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

3. ADATA XPG Gaming Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model AX3U1600GB2G9-2G



4. Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
5. HEC Blitz Black Steel Edition ATX Mid Tower Computer Chassis Gaming Case
w/ Front Blue LED 120mm Fan & Top 120mm Fan

6. Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Also the monitor I have is ViewSonic VX2250wm-LED Black 21.5" 5ms Full HD LED Backlight LCD monitor Slim Design 250 cd/m2 DC 10,000,000:1 (1,000:1) w/Speakers
Please suggest any other options.

Get a Spinpoint F3 1tb hdd, it's cheaper and better.

Also, video card? Also, with sandy bridge it's more adviseable to get 1.5v ram, as it's less demanding and you'll hit higher overclocks ( not sure what you meant by you won't OC but you got an i5 2500k)

considering your getting a decent cpu and ram, i suggest maybe getting the ATI HD 5 series. Or if your on a tight budget, just get the 9800GT. Ive got the 9800gt and I can play gta iv on medium settings!
These are my specs:
AMD Phenom II x2 550 3.1GHz BE
Asus m4a785td v -evo
4gb crucial ram 1066mhz
9800gt
arctic 700w psu (NEVER BUY FROM THIS BRAND)
