I would say drop the K. If your board is H87 then you can not overclock with it anyway. (Although their was a story on this site saying that this is changing with BOIS updates)

I just built a system with an h87 mobo from Gigabyte and a core i5 4670 and I love it for gaming. The simple answer is this, if you like to to sped the time tinkering around to get the absolute best frame rate you can get then buy the K. If your not into the overclocking hobby and just want to spend your time playing games go for the non K. It will run everything just fine. (and it's a little cheaper too!)

get the built i suggested and a 7970 is much faster than 760
and 1600mhz cl9 ram are enough as that 2133 would not increase much perfrmance
