You're gonna wanna buy a cpu cooler

Stock coller should be sufficient if I don't plan on over clocking right away

Can I still run ultra Settings with an i5 without over clocking right away

Almost certainly. The main differences would be a lower clock (~3.5 GHz) and no hyper-threading, which most (if not all) games don't support anyway.

Yes, for gaming you will see zero differnce between a i5 and a i7, most games don't use hyperthreading.

I would replace that PSU. That model (G1 series) is on permanent discount due to lower quality parts. For approximately $6 difference you can get a MUCH better PSU.

As FH100 and Vagabond mentioned, you should probably drop to an i5 if possible. You shouldn't need to OC anytime soon with that GTX970. Especially considering you mentioned you're not going to OC right away and declined an after market cooler, I would recommend a non-K series CPU, which should save you some $$$.

Happy Gaming!
