This will be my main gaming system.. 3-4 hours a day... may overclock later or not... depending on performance of fps and games. Thinking of getting the new GPU 780 TI superclocked for now and maybe SLI in future..

I have a 1440p overclocked at 120 mhz..

Is the motherboard sufficient/good and memory.. Or do I get another motherboard - recommendations or keep it..

What are your recommendations or improvements - do not want to go over 2500. If I can get better performance and better fps with less monies - even better...

or should i go with i5 haswell? from the experienced gamers - what would you recommend on 1440p@120mhz (korean display models) playing BF4 with high fps

If you are not doing any video rendering or encoding get an i5 for sure.

8gb RAM is more than enough if you are only gaming.

That motherboard is overkill and a marketing hoax. The thermal armor actually overheats the board.

WAY too much PSU. 750w is more than enough.

Love your avatar... (Infiniti G35s are awesome!)

That motherboard is a marketing hoax and the 780 TI superclocked is a good choice.

Lol thanks, I'm planning on keeping this one (g35 coupe, 6mt, many mods) for a while.

As to video rendering - very little.. This will replace my console gaming. Not getting the PS4 ...

What combo for i5/motherboard would you recommend?

The 4670k and a z87 motherboard from Asus or Gigabyte. The motherboard should be around $150-$180.
