My suggestion similar to tiny voices's but with no overclocking CPU. H77 board is all you need for non overclocking. Went with AMD 7950 GPU. Changed the case to utilize USB 3.0 headers. If you want to go SLI in the future, I suggest getting the MSI
Z77A-G45 motherboard and a 750W PSU.

An Fx-8350 with it's windows patch will provide better performance in many games over the I5. The patch helps to utilize the cores better
