If this is for gaming you don't need a i7.
Helps to know what this build is for...if it's a gamer it's extreme overkill...RAM voltage isn't good and that speed is pointless unless using integrated graphics.
Here's my answer to that list... http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BWfzWZ
It is for gaming. I do want it overkill, now that I don't get the chance to upgrade every year since I don't live in the US and buying tech stuff is extremely expensive here. I have a @2.5k budget but I do want a i7 since I will later upgrade the ram to be able to multitask with some editing software.
