Nice rig.
The only thing you should actually change is the CPU.
You can better get a nice i3/i5/i7. I would recommend a i3 3220. It's like $130 and it can do some great work.

I would change the power supply. Go with a Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, or Antec to name a few.

Well you can't do top end gaming the way it is (but I am sure you know that).

For that budget or slightly higher I would be a Intel Core i3-3220 and a HD7750.

I know you said it was too much but the i3 is the lowest I would go. You can get the video card and see how it does but it will be CPU limited with your current cpu.
