1. getting a z77 board with a non-oc cpu could waste you some money unless your planning to have dual video cards. So if not, might as well change it to a h77 board.
2. You don't really need a cooler since your not gonna overclock so might as well drop it.
3. With the saved money from the above, you can upgrade that gpu and/or case.

He got you a 7950 GPU instead. No, your CPU won't get hot - it comes with a stock cooler that's good enough.

That is because the builds you have seen were desinged to overclock and they have an overclockable cpu. Stock cooler of your cpu will do fine. Even for years. People who buys aftermarket cooler for overclockable cpu are wasting their money, unless they are after the aesthetics.

I've upgraded your gpu to 7950 hoping that it still fits the budget. If you want to save then go 7870, then just OC it if your not satisfied. but stock 7870 will also do good in you. Might just need to OC it on future games.

If you try to look at the benchmarks, you'll see that 7950 will have 100+ fps on 1920x1080 at max settings, and 78770 will have 90+ fps. So I think you won't have a problem either of the card. Both of them are even overkill with the games you play. But ofcourse, there are more gfx intensive games out there. So I think it would matter on your budget. :)
