Which is best for a gaming computer ? i5 3570 or i5 3450?

That's the only question left, I already chose the gigabyte b75m and the 8gb corsair vegeance.

In my country there is a considered gap between 3570 and 3450 prices. Should I pay a little more to have 0.2 ghz ?

In my researches I read some people saying yes, because if you want a long time rig without overclocking youshould spend on the highest cpu clock possible. Some others just say its not worth the money because the difference can be only seen on benchmarms and I don't know what to do.

I just want to avoid bottlenecking of a high end vga, suck like the gtx titan and for it I realize its not neccessary overclock, will both i5 be just fine?

I need a clue, thanks people
