Thanks for the reply. I'm probably going to have to get a strong 560ti card (I don't really mind, because looking back a I don't really need a 570) to have money towards the motherboard, and the SSD (I'm probably going to get this SSD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) is going to be only 64GB for my OS.

Don't get the i7 2700k. It is overpriced and not better that the i7 2600k. Go for the i7 2600k, not 2700k.

What's the main difference between the two CPU's?

The i7 2700k is 1 Ghz faster, which you could do 3+ Ghz on the 2600k hardly even overclocking the thing. Save your money as it's not worth it. The FPS difference would be minimal. Intel basically just released it as the *Punch in the face* to Bulldozer, which failed by the way.

Ah ok. Thanks for the explanation. I'll save my self a good $50 and get the 2600k.
