but I think I cut some corners lat time
By going with the LGA1150 platform and the Asus Hero motherboard, you are certainly not cutting corners as it is premium grade board and is packed with features for its form factor but also the i7-4770k is more then capable of handling of sort games even CPU bound games like Skyrim. Also one other point to consider is overclocking, if you plan to do it then i suggest a investment in a decent CPU cooler as Haswell runs a lot hotter when overclocked.
also does in the refresh rate of monitors matter much?
To be honest with you, not really much unless your a competitive gamer who is competing then yes but 60hz should be fine.
