I'd recommend a Z77 chipset board for future upgrades(PCIe 3.0), and a i5 3570k. There isn't much of a performance difference between the 3570, and the Ivy i7's. You're paying $200+ for an extra 1000 benchmark performance on 3dMark or so.
As for RAM, you really don't need 16GB unless you're editing graphics, and such but it's your choice .
Video card, I ALWAYS recommend an EVGA GeForce card. A 570 Classified Ultra is a great start, and you can always upgrade to the EVGA GTX 670 FTW after you gather up the extra money, and you can probably do the Step-Up program, which you pay the difference between teh card you own, and the card you want to upgrade to. I'm upgrading from a 560 to a 670 and I only have to pay the $180 difference, and send the 560 in.
I recommend an SSD, w/ a 500G-1TB for storage if you can afford it. Otherwise a 1TB 7200 SATAII would do.
