you have a nice cpu, go with 8 gigs or ram instead of 16 and get a better graphics card , psu is overkill...you can get away with a 600~650w

Thanks for the advice, Ya I wanted a nice CPU that I can overclock to future proof a little, you think a 650 Ti would be killing my graphics power or would I still be able to play most games at high settings.
