Default Upgrade: Need some help from the savvy

Hey guys

Sorry for another one of these threads. Its time for a CPU upgrade, and i'm totally out of the loop with whats good at the moment.

From what i can gather, sandy bridge is what you want?

i'm on a bit of a budget, but i do want the best bang for buck. So i'm thinking an intel core i5 2500k is probably a good bet.

or is it worth shelling out the extra for a 2600k?

anyone got some good motherboard suggestions? and ram while i'm at it?

I'm currently on an old C2D of some variety, but i have upgraded the video card to a GTX 570

so far i'm thinking
intel core i5 2500k
asrock z68-pro3
16gb kingston hyperx 1600
