I'm about to do my next build, but I was wondering if I should go with an i5 4670k and an XSPC Watercooling kit or an i7 with a budget cooler.

All this is for gaming, with a GTX 780. If I go for the i5 I will also buy a waterblock for the gpu. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance.

Specs:
MOBO: MSI Z87-G45 Gaming
GPU: ZOTAC GTX 780 with or without waterblock
CPU: i5 4670k or i7 4770k
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo or XSPC waterblock
Memory: 16GB (Got it from a friend, so please don't comment on that)
And the Cooler Master HAF X

I'd say the i5, only difference in video editing and mutli threaded processes, and not even that much. Watercooling will be a better tradeoff in the end, however you should take a look at these guides first:

I too would go for the i5 instead of the i7 unless you will be doing loads of video editing. Awesome parts by the way. What PSU will you be using?

Thank you, I've watched those videos you sent me, pretty nice, I've always loved Linus.

And I will be using the Corsair CX750W psu.
