Need advice on parts for upgrade.

I've been planning to upgrade for two months now , and currently received my tax return. My budget is $1000USD, but if possible I'd like to stay in the $800 range. I'm looking to get an i5 or an i7. And I'm set on getting a GTX 770 just don't know if I should get the ti or not. I understand I'll be needing a new motherboard and PSU as well. All help is welcome. Thank you.

My current rig is :
A10 6790
R9 270x powercolor
PSU corsair cxm series 500

You don't actually need a new PSU, and there's no 770 Ti, unless you mean you want to get a 780, then there's a 780 Ti, but you can't afford it and an i5 and a motherboard on a $800 budget.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/13CL4 should get you going -- take out the cooler if you already have one that's compatible with LGA1150 motherboards.

Is there a huge difference between an 770 and a 780? Or is the 770 a good card.

Oh yeah, the 770 is a good card, of course the 780 is better, though.
http://anandtech.com/bench/product/1037?vs=1036 shows how much better the 780 is.

Shun,
If I go with the GTX 780 I'll still stay in my $1,000 budget. But now would I have to get a new psu or would my still be fine for the 780 and an i5?
