My System Specs

Default

3570k if gaming only, 3770k if you want it for more threaded tasks (folding would be one). If its in your budget then grab 16gb ram, but 8gb is likely more than enough (as you said, ram is cheap right now anyway). The motherboard is really your call on how much you want to spend. I am sure there are cheaper boards that will OC just as well, but its a personal call if the added expense is worth it.

You will have a very nice build after this cpu/mob/ram upgrade. Enjoy and let us know what you get.
