looks ok to me.
The 7750 is weak to begin with. Its the lowest of the 7000 series cards. You would be much better off with the 7770 for not much more or even a 6850.

I do consider the 560Ti or radeon 7850 as the minimum lvl for gaming on high+ these days.

The processor is overkill for gaming, you can save money by dropping down to an I5 and putting the extra ($100?) into the gpu. You wont stress either cpu much with a 7750 or 7770.
