From what i can tell not really, the i5 you chose should be able to keep up with the gtx 970, and your other change of Gigabyte VS MSI is really a personal choice. Also, again just my opinion, full towers are just unnecessary .
Thanks a lot for your reply, will the i5 be slower when editing images website designing etc?
Yes, the i7 would render faster. How much faster? I couldn't give you an honest answer. Would it be noticeable? Maybe, but only slightly. From a purely gaming perspective you don't get much more from the i7 vs the i5.
Okay thanks, so caught up on what processor to get :(
