Get i7, next gen games will use i7.
Get 250GB SSD you can install lots of games in SSD.
GTX 780 is enough for 1080p, If your palying in 1440p then also GTX 780 enough.
GTX 780 Ti is waste of money.

Haven't heard about the next gen games using the i7, would be interested in a source for that. The XFX power supply in the original build is better than the cx in Parthu's build (corsair cx use chinese capacitors). Honestly, with your budget I would do something like this:

The 1440p monitors are pretty darn sweet, just another option to consider :)

So go with i7 If you want to play Watch Dogs in Ultra
Also watch dogs uses new "Disrupt" game engine, which may need more cores.

Huh, good to know about watchdogs, but I would wait to see how much of a difference there is in the benchmarks. Though it is entirely possible that the i7's hyper threading starts getting used.

If sam1050g is interested in the i7 he can drop the maximus hero down to the asus z87-A or he can throw another $100 at this beast for the i7. Or he could stick with the 144hz screen and fit the i7 easily. Personally I don't see the i5 causing a bottleneck but you never know what the future holds for tech requirements.
