More ram doesn't make a faster pc.Anything over 2gb is barely used unless you do something ram intensive like professional photoshop editing or something.I suggest you get a triple channel 3 or 6gb kit for an x58 motherboard.

Right now the best gaming cpu by far is the i5-2500k,and the p67 chipset.There is no better gaming cpu out today.To build a new gaming pc with Any other cpu would be a mistake.

I would question that isn't beaten by i7 970, i7 980x, i7 990x, and i7 2600k.
