Do you intent to sli your video?

And if it is for gaming, the 2500K is a better choice for a CPU. The 2700K is more for video editing, transcoding, and computing than games. It is still a fine chip, but less bang for the buck.

It's for playing games like skyrim and battlefield 3 Max settings with 50 fps

The i5 2500k doesn't suck at everything except gaming, if that is what you mean.

It is more like the 2500k is a couple % better for gaming and a couple % worse for everything else, and the 2700 is a couple % better for everything else and a couple % worse for gaming.

No motherboard you would ever want for this would be anywhere close to $700.

Just get something like this and you should be fine

- Edit - What you really should be asking is what PSU you should use to power all this.
