1440p sounds cool but i feel like some games might lack in framerate. dayz standalone would be hurting. and if i ran dayz sa on 1080p on a 1440p native monitor it wouldnt look nearly as good as a native 1080 right? and it doesnt have to be 2k. a little overs fine

I doubt you need an i7 if all you will do is game. I kind of regret buying one my self shoulda stuck with just an i5.

Your build does look good though. If you ever intend to SLI 780ti's I'd get a slightly bigger psu though.

If you are just gaming then an i7 really provide any performance benefit at all, only marginally like in a really intensive situation in game. Most of the time it provides no additional benefit for gaming. The i7's only advantage over the i5 is hyper-threading which is the advanced scheduling of tasks, which only really makes a difference if you are doing heavy rendering or graphic design or video editing or heavy multitasking. This video explains hyper-threading well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnS50lJicXc

If I were you I would buy the i5 4670k and use the leftover money to buy a bigger SSD.

You don't have to game at 1440 on a 1440p monitor...

IMHO 1440p with SMAA looks better than 1080p with 4x or more MSAA, and you'd get a similar framerate with either settings. But that's just me.

If you stick with 1080p, be sure to get a lightboost monitor or an FG2421. A strobed backlight makes a HUGE difference in motion clarity.
