Id also like to know if will need some cooling parts, or thermal paste.

What is your overall total budget? I went off of what you already had spent plus money for the motherboard. The 7850 is a lot better than the 650 ti. What is your limit?

450-500$

I plan on dropping another 100 on a monitor. If i have to drop some settings i will, My average FPS must be arounf 30 FPS. I will probably not be playing at 1080p if that makes a difference

Im looking for something with similar performance, but a lower price. I would much rather have windows 7 than 8. The case i chose came with a PSU

This'll do ok for what you're looking at. Kept it under $500. And you don't want to keep psu's that come bundled with cases, very rarely are they good quality.
