  1. It's not good, for gaming, you want a much better card(at least a 650 ti or 7850), drop that cpu, and get a better card+ i3, what counts is the gpu, yours is totally unbalanced.
    Also get a decent psu from brands like xfx,corsair,antec(best value).
    And get 2x4GB ram 1600 mhz 1.5v(for the i3).
    Or tell us where you plan to shopping(newegg, etc...)

    A example :

    CPU: Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor ($109.99 @ NCIX US)
    Motherboard: ASRock H77M Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($69.99 @ Newegg)
    Memory: Crucial Ballistix sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($34.99 @ Newegg)
    Storage: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($54.99 @ NCIX US)
    Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 7850 1GB Video Card ($154.99 @ Newegg)
    Case: NZXT Gamma Classic (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($35.75 @ Amazon)
    Power Supply: Corsair Builder 500W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($29.99 @ Newegg)
    Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($18.98 @ Outlet PC)
    Total: $509.67
