I wouldn't pair it with anything more powerful than a GTX 760 if you're looking at keeping things balanced.

Yes, any of them will work well. But unless you're planning on upgrading to a 1080p monitor, an R9 270 or 270x will run everything on ultra just fine.

If you get a GPU that can perform well at 4K then 2 Roughly 1080p monitors should be no problem for it.

I think you'll bottleneck it the GPU a bit so I'd suggest you to get an i5

Sorry my friend, but it's going to bottleneck the Radeon HD 7950 since it is a powerful card that the processor might not be able preform well.

I disagree, the in most benchmarks, the cpu makes a marginal difference, it will run, but you may want to upgrade to say; a core i5 or core i7 later.
