  1. You will want to get a Z77 board.
  2. Z77, P68 or Z68. But for that CPU(ivy bridge), it is suggested to use Z77.

  4. If I get a 2500K, is it better than 3570K?

    Not really, the 3570K is faster per clock than the 2500K(so 3570K @ 3.4GHz is better than a 2500K at 3.4GHz).

    The 2500K can Overclock more but when both ahve been clocked to its max the 3570K is still slightly better.

    3570K with Z77 also supports more features like native USB3 and PCI-e 3.0.
  6. A 3570k is better clock for clock. But the 2500k tends to overclock a little higher because it runs cooler. Another option is a z68 or p67 board, but you will probably need to update the bios to support a 3570k. For simplicity I would get a z77. What is your budget?

    -edit - Navuake you're too fast.
  7. Mate my budget is 50000INR or 850$. Ill use my TV as a monitor, and I plan a 7950.

    I have already given you my input. Get an ASRock Z77 extreme 4 and a 3570K.
  12. Can you pick out in the PC part picker so it'll be easy? Also I think ASRock pro 4 is enough
