Do these specs look good?

Im building myself a tower for gaming purposes (BF3, WOW, Skyrim etc). Not Crysis :D

What im looking for is if there is anything ive done wrong such as got a graphics card that is too good and a CPU that wont keep up with it or my CPU doesnt fit my moterhboard and im being silly etc. Im also interested if I will come accross problems such as overheating etc.

Since I allready have some spare components that are fine im only interested:

Case: N2XT Gamma Gaming Case CPU: Intel Core i5 2500 (4x 3.3GHz) 6MB Fan: Intel Heatsink and Fan RAM: Corsair 4GB XMS3 PC3-12800 1600MHz (1x4GB) (DDR3) Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 - 1GB (EVGA) (PCI-E) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 (Intel Z68)

I also want the motherboard to support an eternet connector component thingy which I have but I dont know what thats called so im just hoping its there.

It is difficult to give an opinion when you have failed to mention your budget as it would be tricky to suggest an alternative.

As it stands,I not sure about the Z68 mobo I would go for a P67.You have not listed a PSU or operating system.I'm not sure about your RAM I think something like this would be better, RAM. The rest is fine.

Ah sorry. The power supply unit I have atm is 450W. I have a 32bit W7 and 32bit Vista. Im aware to use more than 3.5G RAM I will need a 64bit upgrade at some point.

My budget is about £600.

Thanks for the P67 advice ill look into it.
