Build it on here: www.pcpartpicker.com

It is a good GPU, runs Battlefield 3 rather smoothly and should be capable of doing the same with Arma III. Just use www.pcpartpicker.com to check compatibility and wattage. I feel like the PSu isn't enough for this setup. Also, where is the RAM?

You're just gaming so i5k with the MOBO combo since you won't be needing the i7 since you will not be using any application that takes advantage of HT or requires multiple cores.

Change the psu to
XFX 650w Made by Seasonic

The PSU is fine for that build.
Fair point, where's your RAM.
But also, You may want to fork out the extra for the k model of the i5 circa this article http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/h87-express-overclocking-...

there is a fair chance that your h87 mobo may be able to overclock anyway ;) 

just give a few days for complete details before you pull the trigger.

then crank up the shadow so it moves the load into the GPU instead of the gpu and to put that GPU into use.

aye, in terms of CPU demand the i7 aren't much more powerful if at all. The power if i7's lies in it's ability to utilize hyperthreading, a technology that at the moment isn't used in game engines, but in multithreaded applications such as animation rendering and CAD programs. There are rare exceptions such as crysis 3 and BF3 multiplayer, but even then the differences are maybe 5 frames per second, hardly worthy of the $100+ premium.
