Made some changes, Changed to 8gb of RAM since for gaming no need for more than that. Added a quality motherboard in, changed your card to a nicer one. Changed your CPU since I7 is not needed for gaming and you won't notice the difference it makes. Basically you will get more gaming performance with these changes for close to the same price.

If that's the case.. I would recommend an ASUS z87 sabertooh. Good thermal armor. Good look. Very reliable brand. I have the VI FORMULA full atx board in my rig. Love it. Great for overclocking. I don't know what the budget is, but your set up is prime for a good 5 - 10 year computer as it is. If you want the i7 go with it. I have the 4770k in my build and it handles everything like a dream.

And you should only need around 8gb of Ram to game bro. I have everything open while gaming with 16gb of ram in my build and I havent used past 4.5gb of ram while running the OS, Games, Itunes, Aurora, all temp monitors... etc. Just saying.
