Unless you feel like you will actually benefit from the i7's hyperthreading (video coding for example), I would just stick with the 2500k and get the SLI 780s, or possibly look at AMD's new cards when they get released. 2500k is still an awesome CPU, and any newer cpu's to me seem like a waste on just gaming.

I'd say your computer is really beast as it is! redface.gif

But anyway, as said above, you could just stick with the 2500K, i7 really isn't any improvement over i5 in terms of gaming and such, and just get the SLI 780s.
