No that's fine. I've got an i7 960 and own a 760 gtx runs smooth. So ur Radeon will be fine

I'd do it. 870 isn't a bad thing. I have a 970 at 4GHz and a GTX 680 (forget that my CPU is a 6-core, it doesn't matter in the games I play). Still screams!

Any Core i7 of recent vintage is still going to be high-end and a good match for a mid-range GPU like the 7870.
