I would prolly go with a higher quality power supply actually. If you are a gamer, and you want to use all of that video card I would also prolly go up to an I5 proc.

I suggest this setup because you said it is for gaming.

i5 2500K is still the best for gaming and you will have the chance to overclock the CPU later on with the MOBO included in this kit. It is enough for your $650.00 budget.
