  1. First things first:

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X - LGA 1155 does not fit with an i7-4770k (LGA 1150)

    Like MasterMace pointed out, it's prudent you make sure all your parts are compatible with one another.

    If you're on a budget, which it looks like you are, you could start by picking up a high end Core i5 processor -- I'd suggest the Intel i5 4670K or i5 3570K. Both are excellent processors that will be able to handle games as fast as your cards can handle -- minus hyper threading which doesn't provide any sizable performance gain.

    Main thing is spend a little more on the parts that can't be *easily* upgraded, rather than the ones that take less than 5 minutes to swap out. Basically saying spend more on your motherboard and processor, rather than graphics cards, and memory. Graphics cards can be easily tied together later for SLI or Crossfire rendering, and memory isn't all that essential to high performance computing as long as you have enough to handle what you're doing at decent speeds (1600MHz or better is ideal).
  3. If your over budget I would go with the i5-4670 for $219.99, here

    Note, your i7-4770 was not overclockable and this is also not overclockable. That saves you $90 right there.

    How much are you over budget?
  4. im building with i5 3350p and gigabyte z77x-udh5, but you could use the ud3h and save about 30 more $$
