Your links are all broken, but from what I can see...
For games, an i7 gives no advantage over the much cheaper i5; in fact some games actually run slower.
The PSU is good, but bigger than you need. Unless you're planning to get a second GTX670, then 650W is all you need.
A Xigmatek Gaia cools better and is cheaper than the Zalman.

And how come some games will run slower on an i7?
