For gaming, the GTX 770 is going to improve performance more than the Core i7-4790K, compared to the GTX 760 and Core i5-4690K.

An overclocked i5 4670k is able to easily reach that performance by overclocking it. Also, remember that the cpu isn't the main component in playing games. You will be needing more of your video card when playing games. Even an i3 would not bottleneck those video cards and if you're building a gaming machine, getting the 770 combo with the i5 is better than getting the 760 combo with the i7.
Good luck with your build!
