The 3570k? It would be worth it.

I don't trust Geil at all, but should be worth it and work.

If the ram is bad I am not really out any money. Definitley the 3570k, if I am going to go Intel. I want to go with the best for the money.

I can always buy another set of ram. So based on the I5 and the mobo, what would you do for the other parts? Still keeping it below $650 - 700.

Same as in my other post. Keeping it under that amount I would bump the PSU up to the 650w TX instead and maybe up to the 660 instead of 650ti.

One more question and I think I will have all the parts covered. I was wondering if you could suggest a case with good cable management, either behind the mobo, or something else? Thanks

So this is the updated list:
CPU: I5-3570K ($230)
PSU: CORSAIR 650TX ($100 - $25 rebate)
MOBO: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA {Already Purchased $114)
RAM:GeIL EVO Veloce Series 8GB(Free with MOBO}
GPU: EVGA SSC GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB (Cost $170 + Free Assasin's Creed 3 - $10rebate)

Total without Case $580!

Corsair Carbide 300 is pretty nice and cheap.

I was leaning towards that case already, still looking but I do like it.
