  1. for gaming the i7 is a bit overkill, the i5 would be a better bet. however, for activities that benefit from more than four cores, it could be worth it.

    GPU looks good, should handle everything great at 1080p.

    your motherboard is complete overkill. go with the ASRocks Z87 Extreme6, Asus Z87 Pro, or Gigabyte’s Z87X-UD4H and save the money for future upgrades.
