I'd go for the 4570K which means it unlocked and you can overclock. They are probably about the same but I'd go with Intel if you have the cash to spend otherwise AMD for a budget but you'd need an 1150 motherboard like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Z87-PRO-Moth...l+Motherboards

The 4570K is better for gaming and either motherboard board will be fine as long as its LGA1150..

Your performance will be good depending on what you'll be running..

I'm intrigued as to why this would be?
I'm not saying it doesn't, as I don't know enough but it seems to be illogical.

However I agree with the overall statement 16Gb is overkill 8Gb will be fine.
