So a little about me:
-FPS gamer
-My computer is everything to me
-I like to have top of the line parts
-I skip every other generation of intel and nvidia

I have a 2500k and a GTX 560

I want to get a 4570k and a GTX 760
I am curious if this is a good choice of parts ( 4th gen i5 3570k and 700 series gtx 670)
I will be playing BF4 and things like that, I want to play on Ultra on the most resource heavy games)

I will also need a new mobo

All input is wanted

is an i7 a large improvement for gaming?

Not particularly. i7 is more useful if you want more power for graphics design, video editing etc. In games, they use the graphics which has, essentially, a dedicated 'processor' for itself so games will be improved by better graphics cards. In saying that, you can end up with bottlenecks if your CPU is particularly old for the graphic card (for new technologies such as faster PCIe slots etc.)
