I'll suggest to get GTX 780 instead of 500GB SDD.
You can downgrade it to 120GB ! It will hold your OS and some other programs!
GTX 780 will help you get much better FPS out there!

No, going with i7 is not a big advantage until you are into serious video editing and rendering!i5 is all that takes it to game!
