Default Selling & Buying

Hi everyone, im selling my old computer.
Well, just some parts, i will keep the case (Cooler Master Storm Enforcer), the DVD Burner (ASUS DRW-B3ST), the Harddrive's (Samsung F3 500GB 7200RPM + Seagate 200GB).
I will sell:
Intel Core i5 2500K
ASUS P8P67 Pro RevB3.1
GSkill Ripjaws X RED (2x2GB) 1600Mhz CL9 DDR3
Corsair CX-600W

Why im selling?
I need to buy a need graphics card, but i have not much money to spent on that.
The Graphics Card i have now, i backing him three times! It works, but it's a lot of work to do every time he show's up some artefacts.
The processor, it's so good, for the things i do, so i decided to buy a little bit less powerful processor.
The Memory ram, i want 2x4gb 1866mhz instead of a 2x2GB kit, i will rendering and editing videos, i will not play so much games so.
The Powersupply, i think nowadays i can buy better for the money, isn't 80plus, he can have the power of an 80 plus, but i think i can buy a new one for the same price and better am i right?

Should i keep the processor and powersupply?
I have a total around $420(if i sell all) or $200 if i only sell MB+Ram+Graphics Card, can someone help me?
What components should i buy to change the old one's?

Exactly, just save up for a new graphics card. Selling or downgrading the rest of the system just doesn't make sense especially since you want to do gaming.

$200 for your MB/GPU/Mem won't even buy you a low-end mobo/proc/mem so you won't be any further ahead unless there's a swap being suggested for the gear.
