i strongly recommend to get i5 3570k with that gpu, there is not a massive difference between 3770k vs 3570k.... games originally need gpu power..

LOL, you can't go wrong. The 580 is a stronger gaming card. Both CPUs will game the same. Since you are mostly gaming go with the 580 at the same price.

But really, you can't go wrong with either pair with any normal monitor configuration.

edit: here's a photoshop benchmark http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/core-i7-37...

69.5 vs. 68.2 seconds. Seems like a dead heat to me. You can also look at the other benchmarks, some the i7 is faster.
