Hi Rahul,


Out of the three CPU's you've got to choose from, the Intel Core i7 3770K is definitely the best one, and will give you the most performance out of your GPU, should it be NVIDIA's GEFORCE GTX 670, or AMD's Radeon HD 7970. It's the highest end Core i7 in the LGA1155 socket, and would definitely pull some great performance from your GPU.
