Hi. You can save money with a less expensive H77 or even a B75 motherboard. You can also get cheaper RAM since you won't be overclocking with the Samsung RAM. I'd use the money save on the GTX 660 or HD 7870. Feel free to make changes as you'd like.

I was thinking of doing that with the motherboard but will this at all affect the performance of the computer? Also which is better gtx or radeon?

No it won't but like I've said you can get one from a different brands or features. Whether to go with AMD or Nvidia is your call.
