The i5-3570k is just as good as the i7-3770k for gaming. The only situation in which you will see a significant improvement in the 3770k is in the case of video editing.

8 GB of RAM is more than fine for gaming. You won't notice much, if any, improvement with 16GB.

FINALLY! Someone agrees with me that response time isn't everything.
