While that's a solid system, and it will play all of those games, it will have a difficult time running anything current on high settings, especially all of the games you listed(they're all pretty much graphics juggernauts!). Depending on your budget I might suggest bumping up the CPU to an i7 4770K Haswell. The performance is very good and the power draw minimal. Tests have also shown a healthy amount of over clocking is available on it. I might also upgrade to at least a 700 series graphics card. That system is going to get very tired within 2 years.

Btw The last of Us is a ps3 exclusive, you will not be able to play it on your pc. ( and the GTA V release is gonna be a while for pc.) A 4770k is useless for gaming, a 760 is way better than a 660 for only a little extra. At least five years is not realistic in the mid-low end for gaming.

Get a 760, play those games (Not tlou) and enjoy that pc for about 3 years on the mid-low spectrum.
