    Really depends on your budget, but I would go for the Intel Core i5 3570K personally.

    Like Ravallo had said it really depends on your budget.
    If you got the money buy a intel for sure, they are the best you can get for your money.

    As Bengali said, I would upgrade to the 3570K as it is a 3rd Generation processor. It will also give you a better 'kick' when overclocking. When purchasing motherboards you have to think what price range you are looking into, what brand and are you going to overclock. A motherboard that allows overclocking will generally cost more than a board that doesn't allow overclocking.

    Right now I own a ASRock Z77 Pro4-M motherboard and have an Intel i5 3570K on it.
