My System Specs

Default

If it was my money and my build for a gaming rig I would make the following changes. Drop the motherboard down a notch or two to save a few bucks (you won't really loose any features), go to a i5 3570k, stick with the same ram/monitor/HDD/GPU, use the saved money to go to a quality 650-750w power supply (XFX, Seasonic, Corsair, Antec), up the SSD to a 240gb version, and grab an aftermarket CPU heatsink (cooler master hyper 212 if you want to keep it good but cheap, or a noctua if you want silence/quality/don't mind spending a few extra $).
