Cpu = I5-I3570K
SSD = Intel 330 series 120GB
RAM = Kingston Genesis 2GBx2 1600mhz(need any change? Still got 2 slot left for dual channel)
Motherboards = Asus P8Z77-M
Psu = true power 450watt(Planning to upgrade to seasonic x750)
GPU = gigibite HD5570 (Sapphire R9 290X or Asus GTX970???)
CPU COOLER and paste = any recommendations?

Mostly for gaming. Aiming for ultra/extreme setting.

GTX 970 for sure. You won't even need to update your PSU.

Since you're in Malaysia I don't know what brands are offered there. If you can get an eVGA.

If you can then yes you should upgrade your RAM to 8GB.

Anything 1600MHz. Doesn't really matter on brand.
