psu would be a seasonic or a xfx 600W, depends on what 780 Ti you go for really, but I'm going to say it because other people will, 780 ti is overkill for 1080p bla bla bla, but it's your choice :)

Don't buy 780Ti now. Wait till Sep when 880 is confirmed being released. It is expected that there would be 10% performance increase in 880 when compared to 780Ti. You can buy the remaining components now and wait on GPU. Also 880 is expected to be under $500 tab which makes it compelling case to wait for that card.

PSU: Seasnoic/XFX/EVGA/Corsair HX series PSU will do the job for you.

Mobo: Asus Hero VII or Gigabyte Gaming 5 series in Z97

Check this build. GPU is included for price reference. You don't need i7 only for gaming. i5 is best suited for gaming only.

Nops, you don't need i7 unless you are into heavy graphics rendering tasks which require more CPU resources hence i7 comes handy there.
