I'd personally get a faster GPU but it all depends on the resolution you plan to play at and what graphics settings you are comforatable with.

If you aren't going to overclock, you can step down to a lower end processor. If you don't need to store tons of games at once you can get a smaller HDD. Take the savings and get more GPU.

Believe a lot of folks are saying the i5-3450? Check Tom's and MaximumPC for their mid-range builds to see. Maybe someone with recent experience will chime in.

That PSU is over kill unless you plan on running SLI in future, I would scale back the psu and processor as other has suggested and use that money to upgrade your video card. You also need to state what resolution you plan to game in or at least want to game in.
