I'm not much into intel CPU's but I know that there are lot's of things than can be improved here. But that is for someone else to decide.
However you should get Windows 8.1 instead. It uses less ram, takes less space and will grant you a little performance boost. And lasts a lot longer.

if you are ready to increase your budget...you can take the i7...or else the i5 4370k is pretty awesome
CPU-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
And take this mobo with the 4670k(its a great mobo)--http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The GPU gtx 650 that you have chosen is not that good...you wont be able to play the upcoming games...you can't even max out the current games
SO if youre willing to increase your budget...you can take the r9 270x...which is great GPU for the value...if you dont want to increase your budget...then either get the 650 ti boost or the radeon hd 7850
GPU-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And you don't need a 650w PSU
You will be fine with a 550w PSU
