I am buying PC and I have chosen next components:

- Motherboard : MB LGA1150 B85 Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H
- RAM : Patriot Viper 3 2x4Gb 1600MHz
- SSD : Toshiba Q Series 128GB
- Case : Raidmax Raptor 832BR Black
- PSU : Cooler Master Gaming 600W

I am thinking to buy one of next 3 CPUs :

- Intel Core i7-4770k
- Intel Core i5-4670k
- Intel Core i5-4440

I dont know do I really need i7-4770k or is it enough i5-4670k or even i5-4440. I will use it for gaming and software development (Eclipse, MySQL Workbench, Visual Studio ...). Some graphics card advice would be helpfull too.

For your board the K series does not matter (no OC) so the I5 4440 is the best. Depending on budget R9 270X or GTX760 up as GPU.

If you do however want a k series proc, get a z87 based mobo, otherwise you are wasting money.
For a graphics card i'd get a msi 770 gaming oc.
Gamingwise, you won't need a 4770k, an i5 will do the
job with a good graphics card-same goes for software development as long as you dont have cpu intensive tasks.
