Tier 2 processor question

Tier 2 processor question
So I plan on ordering most of my computer online and building something along the lines of a tier2 gaming PC.

I have two questions.

I found a i5-2500k processor for real cheap(like 70 dollars off). I was wondering if this would require an increase in power to use it in the tier 2 setup from this site to use it and would it be worth it for the extra price?

TDP is higher but not enough to need a better power supply. It would easily be worth the extra price; go for it!
