This is what I plan to get. I have all other components for it from my last computer. Only upgrading the Mobo/CPU

Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme3 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813157330
CPU: i5 3570K http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819116504
Heatsink: H80i http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835181031

I plan to buy this today, so if anyone thinks any different, let me know.

Are you getting them from Microcenter? That combo is about $140 cheaper there.

I like the CPU and the heat sink cooler. Never used the MOBO or even heard of that brand.

I have way back in socket A which broke, RMA, broke. But their A game is pretty top notch these days. They are a branch of ASUS (hence their name)
