Alright, thanks a lot. I'm also trying to save money too.
But since you recommended a new motherboard, I was wondering if these would work with the motherboard that you recommended: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231315
And I'm also curious if my graphics card will get bottle-necked by the i5 that you recommended?
Yeah but 16GB won't be necessary if this is a gaming system - you'll never use all of it.
As far as the GPU goes - the i5-3570K actually unlocks PCI Gen 3, which will provide a significant speed boost to the GTX 670, so neither one will bottleneck each other.
