You don't need that big of a power supply, so cut that down on that, to a 600-650 and get a bigger graphics card, maybe a 7850 or 7870.
Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Also i tend to avoid CoolerMaster PSU's, they are pretty much terrible. Maybe add an HDD later on down the road for game storage. 7850 would be a better card as well. Other than that looks good.
