Your choice but they're pretty much equivalent.

In games, i5-2500k and the i7-2700k is basically on par with each other as most games do not effectively utilize more than 2 cores much less hyperthreading.

On the other hand, a GTX 570 is by itself better than a 6870 but 2x 6870s in Xfire will be slightly better. Meanwhile the corsair HX750 is most definitely better than the NZXT psu.

Agreed.

I would rather hold onto the current i7 configuration and add on another GTX570 later on considering prices are going down.
