ok for gaming but
nope.........not an unlocked cpu........need the "k" version
PSU is not alright.................generic power.......not 80+ certified brand name....a 500w 80+ certified would be better but buy a 650w like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703027&cm_sp=Cat_Power_Supplies-_-24_Hr_Sale-_-17-703-027
with RAM so cheap ......why not 8gigs? 2 x 4 gig RAM

204 pin SODIMM memory is for laptops and will not install in an Asus P8Z68M-PRO desktop motherboard. Your motherboard needs 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM.

Standard OC'ing disclaimer: overclocking voids your hardware warranties and adds an extra risk of frying some or all of your parts.

If you know this, I do not mean offense. If you do not know this, you need to decide if you can afford to buy any of your components twice.
