For a gaming rig go with a i5 as said above. Put the money saved by going with a i5 instead of the i7 for a better GPU. If you are gaming on a single 1080p monitor I think a single GTX 770 would do you just fine. I see no reason to go for a SLI setup when you are only using a single monitor. But for a full 120/144MHz monitor that might not be a bad option to get the best fps you can.
