This is the wrong forum, but I would go Skylake rather than an older generation. It will allow you to get a faster CPU as well as faster and more up to date RAM. Also I'd get a better PSU. At least a Corsair CXM, but it would be even better if you were to go up to a Corsair RMx or EVGA G2 unit. Also if you wanted to overclock as much as you can, look into the Sycthe Fuma cooler. It's capable of getting overclocks on par or better than AIOs.

Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB: Many would use a SSD as primary drive or operating system and programs.
EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR: A budget model.
