if it costs that much extra get the motherboard and the lesser priced processor. how much is i5-2500k there? that would be my second recommendation

the 2500k costs about the same as 3470. do you think i should get the 3470
+ z77?. it's 50$ extra, will i notice the difference?

the 2500k over 3470 any day because it's unlocked. If you can find any cheap z68/z77 motherboards and pair it with the 2500k you will be good to go!

but when i look at the charts the 3470 preforms alot better than the 2500k and they are the same price.

you can go with if if you want to. i5-2500k and i5-3570k are by far the most recommended processors on toms, its the gaming sweet spot like 6gb of memory is the sweet spot for gaming, its the perfect amount of power without getting up into ridiculous prices. honestly any i5 from sandy or ivy besides the low power versions will do nicely. most people like to spend the extra few bucks for either upgraded integrated graphics in both chips and most notably the overclocking. you can easily get a stable over clock over 4.5ghz. i have ran my i5-2500k stably at 5ghz but i toned it done for longevity
