If you havent allready bought this setup, for the gpu switch it out for a gtx 580. And the processor for a 2500k if you arent doing any encoding or other tedious computer tastk other then gaming.

Check my sig. A i5 2500K and 8GB is enough for gaming. Spend more on GPU.

Hopefully you didnt buy the RAM and CPU then, for gaming go with the i5 2500k and 8GB ram DDR3 1600 mhz

But besides that everything looks good
