If you want to run things on ultra settings, it all comes down to your graphic card. From what I'm seeing you can run most games in high, you are very limited to running games in ultra though. Your psu is fine. I suggest you upgrade your graphic card if you still want to strive for ultra settings, the other thing is that you should invest in a ssd. But then again, you already hit you $1000 mark and what you have is a good midlevel gaming computer.
