The i3 should be fine since the 750 Ti is an entry level card. Anything stronger than the 750 ti tho, i would recommend an i5.

It is gonna be become quite a noticeable bottleneck in CPU intensive games like GTA V and Watch Dogs. However GPU intensive games, that don't require a strong cpu should run ok. I would recommend you to get a core I5 it will give you a huge performance boost.

I think you should go for a GTX 950 with your CPU. You don't wanna regret missing out on new games :3 (the gt 730 is pretty slow)
