Personally just can not justify anything over an i5 if your just gaming. Switched out the Mobo(still very good just less $$). Changed the RAM. More video card performance for less.

I agree with FrostPirate but if you really want an I7 I recommend this setup. You might want another fan, but it's your choice. For less money , I improved your performance everywhere. Although your 780ti was good, it won't stand a chance against 3 sapphire r9290's in three way crossfire. This will give you good 4k performance if needs be..

I just cant justify spending 2700usd on a single GPU build. This build will be vastly enough to overkill on 1080p so I suggest getting a nice 1440p monitor. You can also go 780 SLI for 200usd more or 290x crossfire, which is better than the 780 Sli, and still you wont reach the 2700usd mark.

Unless you are rendering videos or some Adobe programs or any other in the are, you dont need that type of i7. An i5 will be more than enough. 1TB SSD is too expensive. Go with 500GB and a 2TB HDD.
