you do not want to mess around with corsair in the returns department i had 6gbs of Dominator GT DDr3-2000 ($400) and it was fualty and i returned but it took 5mths to hear back and by then they did not manufacture the specific stick anymore so i had to downgrade to DDr3-1866 (200$) but fortunatly they did refund all the money lol

i5-2500k is still being sold, but its replacement model right now is i5-3570k. Things have changed since then.
As for the motherboard, check out Z77 boards. Some of the options:
- BIOSTAR TZ77XE3 ATX Motherboard @ $110
(From my PC build guide)
Use pcpartpicker.com, might help with finding deals on other parts you may have already found.
i5-2500k is available. Its direct successor is i5-3570k. Yes, the 3570k is slightly better than the 2500k, but worse heat generation when overclocked.
i5-2500k will still work.
Note I said Extreme4, not Extreme4-M. Don't bother with the -M version.
