Advice on an Intel build needed

Ello folks,
A mate of mine has asked for some advice on building an Intel rig for gaming and since i've only used AMD i thought i'd ask you lot
He does want something thats going to handle demanding games for a good while. I suggested an i5 3570 or 3570k and a 670/680 as he prefers Nvidia. I'm lost with Intel boards though
Could you suggest a full build for him please. Budget is not a problem for what he wants.
he'll be buying online in sweden.
I shall link him to this post.
Cheers folks..

CPU: Intel i5 3570k @ 3.4 GHz (3.8GHz turbo)
GPU: MSI Nvidia GTX 670 Power edition 2GB
Mobo: MSI Global ? Motherboard - Z77 MPOWER
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB 1600 MHz

Nice 1 chap, I've heard a fair few stories about MSI boards and he needs something thats going to be reliable so i think he's best staying with Asus or Gigabyte for the motherboard.
Everything else is sound though mate

Yeah I have heard some horror stories on MSI, guess I've been lucky. Out of all my builds I've always used MSI boards and haven't had issues.

Gigabyte or Asus are very good too

The Z77 Sabertooth gets very good reviews Ryan, a few members on here have them too and love them.

Yeah i've heard good things about it too, Is there any perticular ram that works well with Intel cpu's? Or is some Corsair Vengeance the a good all rounder?

I've linked the thread to him but he's stuck in combat Arma 3 so he'll register later on at some point.

I have always heard Corsair was the best, but I bought some cheap PNY Electronics 1600 and it OCed to 2133 with ease.

Personally I am a gskill man, owned 4 sets now on my Intel rigs, it's fairly cheap and has worked great.

That's my favourite anyway, I am sure others have their own favs.

@ Alan the pic is too small mate I can't make it out, When i said full build i should have said he already has a full system so will be carrying over the Hdd's, dvd rw and peripherals. sorry :P

From threads i've read it seems most go for Gskill or Vengeance with Asus boards so they're god choice's for him enit.
