I recently bought a gtx 780ti, and i still notice that i can't run games like Dayz standalone on max without getting annoyed by fps drops...

I do not have the right processor (perhaps not the best motherboard either)
My processor is I3-3220 processor
My mother board is ASUS p8b75-m socket 1155

So I consider buying a upgrade pack which contains:
Intel® LGA1150 Core i7-4770K
MSI Z97 GAMING 5, Socket-1150
Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 1600MHz 16GB KIT

I do just wonder if this would be enough together with 780ti to get rid of all those graphic problems when I run dayz on max.

Yea, dayz is not a huge cpu hog, but a dual core i3 isn't going to cut it. Kind of funny you have a $750 graphics card with a $80-100 cpu. But yes, its the cpu. Don't go crazy on a i7, for gaming you'll rarely use more than 4 cores, get an i5 4760k instead. Also, no need for 16gb let alone vengeance pro, just get decent 1600mhz 8gb (2x4gb sticks). Motherboard, is a little overkill, but well suited towards gaming.

If you're going to get a Z97 board, why not get a Haswell-E chip to compliment it? Not that there's anything wrong with a 4670K, but in some places there's only ten or so dollars difference between it and the Haswell-E counterpart, 4690K.
