  3. An i7 will make absolutely no difference in comparion to an i5 when it comes to gaming.

    Get an i5-3570k Ivy Bridge.
  4. Or a 2500K. The Ivy chip is about 8% faster clock for clock but the Sandy Bridge chip will likely overclock higher.

    Make sure you use 1.5v RAM with any of those chips.

    A 550w power supply is fine for any single graphics card. Only get the 750w model if you plan on adding a second card in Sli later on.
