you are choosing a "K" version of the I5 and a motherboard based on the B85 chipset.
Not a good mach. The B85 chipset does not support overclocking. So there is really no point in getting the K version if you are gonna use that board. you should chose another motherboard

K means it has a better overclocking ability than the standard, per say, i5-3570

It's not just better then a standard I5 for overclocking. The non "K" version has overclocking abilities turned OFF, but the K has them turned ON. that's the only difference. even though overclocking is a pretty big deal. To me overclocking support is a deal maker or breaker. If it can't overclock, then i am not gonna buy it.

If you are not an overclocking and the non K version is cheaper, then get the non K version.
but if it's the same (or ruffly the same) price, then get the K version and buy a motherboard with an OC supported chipset.
OC enabled chipsets does not cost more. You never know if you are gonna end up overclocking anyway.

I would say whether yu OC or not, making the parts as compatible as possible is the best way. So in your case get a motherboard that supports overclocking or a CPU that doesn't.

I did some research. and saw small performance boost between ivy bridge and Haswell.

so i decided to go with this setup. Upgrading from AMD athlon x4 640 will be doing this early next year
