Multi-media, console replacement

 Hello all, this is my first post here I am looking into building my first PC. I am wanting to replace my Dell Inspiron 530 that has an Athlon II x4 630, a NVIDIA GT 610, and 6GB of RAM, I currently use my PC mainly for streaming media and watching movies, I play a heavily modded Fallout 3, and a vanilla Fallout NV that I plan on modding in the future. I also play Team Fortress 2 and Civilizations V.   I just got into using emulators as well. 

 I plan on building a small form factor PC that I can use as my main rig for now, In the near future I would like to play Bioshock Infinite, Titanfall, and the new Civilizations. In a year I want to  dedicate it to the family room as a N64/Gamecube/Wii console that can be used to play some PC games and my Bluray collection, also to connect to my home network and play movies that I have stored on my network, 

I will order everything from Newegg, and Hopefully will be building within the next two months.

 I chose the FM2 CPU over a FX part because I have a clear upgrade path with AMD releasing Carrizo next year.

I have a 1TB Segate Barracuda that I can carry over from my old PC

The PSU I chose because of the short cable kit available from Silverstone that will make building in the 250D a lot more pleasent I think.

I chose the faster memory in case I decide to upgrade to a Carrizo APU in 2015.

 

 

 My questions are;

Is this a good build for my intended uses?

What kind of overclocking can I expect with the mITX board that is a little less than enthusiast grade? (Iv'e read that the 750K can be pushed up over 5 GHz)

Is this a good graphics card to pair with this CPU?

Will the absence of a L3 cache really hurt my gaming performance?

Thanks in advance.

It will be alright, but an Intel build would be much stronger.  The 760k is also around the performance of an i3.  2400mhz RAM isn't needed in this build as well.

I'd say around 4.5ghz, especially with that watercooler.  Remember, it all depends on your luck.  It's known as the "Silicon Lottery".  No two chips are completely alike.

Yeah, it's a good mid range card.

No, not really.

Here's an Intel build.  Intel really pulls ahead in SFF PCs:  You shouldn't need to overclock an i5 for quite awhile as it's a lot more powerful than a 760k: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3wJya
