  1. Get a better video card, if you care about frame rates. I'm sure others will recommend you good cards.
  2. Best answer
    first of all, the cpu cooler wont fit, its for socket 775, yours is 1155.
    your hdd is small and slow, i think its made for laptops, better get a wd blue 1tb
    your videocard is pretty low end, id recommend you something better like a hd7870/7950 or a gtx 760.
    if you stay with you videocard, i would put the cpu a bit down, a overclockable i5 is a massive overkill for your 650ti. if you want to stay with intel, id go for a 3470/3350p with a cheap h77/b75 board and stay with the stock cooler, since you wont be able to oc. another good option would be a fx6300 with a decent am3+ board (atleast a chipset 970 one)
    leave the ethernet adapter, your motherboard got already one.
    i also highly recommend you to change the psu to a better one, atleast a 400w unit from a well known brand like seasonic, xfx, corsair, rosewill.

    that looks much better, maybe opt in a coolermaster hyper 212 evo if it fits your budged, the videocard will work without any problem!
