running a game is dependant on the graphics card and cpu. with what you have it will do well @ 1920x1080.
the PSU will just be enough to overclock the i5-2500K.

doesn't matter; the cpu uses the motherboard memory and the gpu uses the memory on the card.

a 7850 is a higher mid range card. depending on the game some ultra but mostly high/med details to keep it around 45+ FPS.
