  1. What is your budget? And please also state your unit of currency.
  2. an i5-3570K is fine for just gaming, do you plan on overclocking?
  3. Asus Z87 V pro
    Intel I7 4770k, because new games are starting to benefit from all the core (bf4, crysis3 for example)
  4. Best answer
    If you dont intend to overclock you could get something like that:
