Get rid of windows Prof and stick with home premium. If you can squeeze in an extra few dollars consider getting a HD7850 it is newer and performs better then a 560ti. The 7850 will max all games at your resolution.

An i5 3570k would be another nice upgrade to your build just to balance it out. I.e higher turbo boost and what not. And if you every do decide to overclock (I know what you said above) you have the option.

Other then that well balanced out.

Yes, home premium works for all those games. The OS of my laptop is Win 7 Home Premium and I can play Skyrim, Mass Effect, CS: Source, BF3, Witcher 2, etc. Home edition, Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate just differs in the features bundled with them, in accordance to the name implied. (Enterprise is for businesses and Ultimate offers all features)

If your not overclocking it will be completely fine, noisy, but fine.

Coolermaster hyper 212+/Evo, is ideal and well worth the extra $30 ish. But it's only a nice bonus. Feel free to stick with the stock cooler :)
