good build years

That GPU was new 3 years ago. Get something newer.
That PSU is junk. Get one from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.
That motherboard is stupid overkill and way too expensive.
That CPU is fine if you do editing or encoding. For gaming the i5 is equal in performance to the i7.

Its very old and uses ALOT of power. It will not max games today. It will play at medium/high.
Its old. You shouldn't even be considering it. What is your GPU budget?
