Looks like your motherboard will support faster ram. This is what I would do with 300 bucks.

they look great thankyou for your help Huge if i could stretch the budget would you reccomend water cooling for my I5 2500K?

Yea. If you're going to overclock, definitely. I don't know what you're clocked at right now, but that cooler master tx3 is a fairly average cooler.

A better cooler doesn't have to cost 100 dollars either. You can get into 4.5ghz+ territory with a better air cooler or a 120mm aio water cooler. I would look for something like a D series Noctua or something similar with push/pull fans if you want air. Or something like a Corsair H60 or H80 if you want water.
