I'd personally go for an I7 X58 setup. The triple channel Memory and full PCI-E bandwidth is very nice. Besides that, the i7 has a lot more processing power (just be sure to get a good cooler, they run stupid hot; a Cooler Master V8 is a good one).

IMO G.Skill and Kingston are both good stuff. I have used both before with good success. Get whichever is cheaper. :)
