currently: the i5 3570K is the price/performance sweetspot. Build around that with the appropriate motherboard, you should use the stock CPU cooler unless you want to overclock for an additional 30% or more CPU performance (totally not necessary, considering how efficient and powerful that chip is).

edit: nice motherboard to use: http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=76...r&promoid=1360

their GD65 series Z77 chipset board is also really nice, but that one is all black... and so good looking
