obviously, if you can afford a i7, get that. Its faster, and future proof. If not, the i5 will suffice (they are almost identical in performance in current games)

well for gaming a 4670k is more than enough.
The core i7 is more for people doing more CPU depending work.
You would only lose about 3 FPS, which is impossible to tell a difference.
I would recommend going Western digital instead of seagate, as the are reliabe and for around the same price. something like the western digital black.

If the build is just for gaming, get an i5 and invest in an ssd, amazing speed difference!

You should get an i5 4670K rather than an i7. It has similar performance in gaming and can also overclock really well. And yes as In3rt1a said , you can spend the rest of the money on an SSD or Ram.
