Difficult Question. If you are going for long time use then this best CPU but i5-2500K is also a beast as well but it'll fade out earlier than this one.

Both of them will be fine with that GPU and even more than that. But i5-2500K is cheaper but long term is i7-3770K.
I would recommend doing a good investment to last a few years.
