Any and all advice would be welcome as to what I can change to make it more optimal for a gaming experience. I would also need to use WiFi on the computer as the router is too far away for me to connect to it through a wired connection, would it be better to get a PCI WiFi card or just use a usb WiFi adapter? Last thing! I live near a Microcenter, and they're running a deal right now on the i5-2500k, so it's $30 dollars less than in the markup through my link.
Once again, thanks in advance, sorry if I posted in the wrong forum!

I would get a 6870 (#1 GPU for price performance ive heard)
Is the idea behind swapping out the i5 for an i3 to free up budget space for the 7850? Rather, if I looked to upgrade sometime in the future, would it be worth it upgrading the CPU? (not the near future, as it would be redundant to not just save up until I have the funds for it.)
@above, the i3 should be able to run everything, except cpu intensive or not optimized games like bf3. if you don't play bf3, than an i3 will cover just about everything worth mentioning. (hence why i have an i3-2120(for now) and a 7850 rather than like a 3570k + a 6850 or something)
Alright, Thanks a lot. I think I'll be sticking with the build that bigcyco1 put up. Thanks a lot everyone for all your help!
