My System Specs

Default Rebuilding new computer with my old 955BE, would like opinions

I upgraded from a 955 to a 3570K. After initially building with the 955 I wish I would have done more research (was my first time building) and went intel from the get go, I had planned to sell the 955 but thr didn't work out like I thought so I decided to keep it and use I later. I spend time between two houses so I thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and reassemble so that I have a gaming capable computer no matter where I am consider my laptop is a MacBook.My current home computer is:
3570k @ 4.5ghz 1.24v
Hyper 212 evo
Msi z77a-gd65
Msi tfiii 7850 (1100/1300 @1138mv)
Samsung 830 128gb
Samsung spin point f3 1tb
Antec three hundred
Ocz zs 750w
Corsair vengance lp 8gb 1600 MHz ram

Other parts I have that would be in the new build are:
Hyper 212+
As rock 890gx pro3
Corsair xms3 1333mhz 4gb
Ocz vertex 120gb

So I was thinking of picking up an antec one illusion from newegg(better cable management and good price) and putting my current build into that and reusing my 300 for my "new" build
And then picking up:
Antec neo Eco 520w psu
Msi tfiii gtx660

The 660 would replace the 7850 and the 7850 would go with the amd build.
Not really looking to spend more on the gpu. I want nvidia at home because my 3570K runs the physx from borderlands alright but I think the 660 may do a better job, plus drivers from the nvidia side seem more stable from my perspective since I keep having random little issues.

I'm open to just accepting te frame rate drops from physx for borderlands at home off te 3570k and just getting a cheap gpu for the new build however if that would be my best move, if that was the case I would also find a cheaper enclosure and not worry about switching things around.

Any thoughts are appreciated!
