Games are pretty GPU reliant. So, while your PC is mid-grade, your GPU will be your weak link.

Make sure your RAM is low profile.
Your PSU is WAY overkill. 500w will be plenty. Coolermaster sucks for PSUs. Get one from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.

its low profile.

You can get a 7950 for under $300. You'll get crysis 3 and bioshock infinite. I agree on the PSU, I'd look at seasonic. You won't need 850w, a quality 550w PSU will be enough.
