    PSU is a bit overkill but it was cheap anyway and will last you a while if you decide to upgrade some parts.

    If you want you can drop down to a i3-3220 and go for a Radeon 7870XT instead.
    Intel i5-3570K @ 4.7GHz | MSI Z77 Mpower | Noctua NH-D14 | Corsair Vengeance LP White 1.35V 8GB 1600MHz
    Gigabyte GTX 670 OC Windforce 3X @ 1372/7604MHz | Corsair Force GT 120GB | Silverstone Fortress FT02 | Corsair VX450

    I would go with the second build personally... (the one from jhold)

    It has the capacity for upgrading in the future, and has a good step up in GPU.
