    Get gtx670 instead of 7750 if you want to play games, and slightly bigger psu for overclocking
    Personally i would change the cpu for eight core amd and amd friendly mobo too but thats your decision

    Make sure you like Windows 8 before you get it. It’s a crock of crap as far as interface goes for those who aren’t inclined to change.
    You should have mentioned what you’re paying for this thing, too. Would be helpful.
    I’d say that your CPU’s never going to be used to its full potential. Your Graphics Card is very weak relative to the power your CPU could put out. It’s good practice to distribute your resources evenly between your CPU and your GPU.
    I’d suggest getting a GTX 650ti, for 130 dollars. And downgrading your Core i5, to an FX-4300. The FX-4300 isn’t the best on the market, but it’s better than the i3’s in the more modern games, and not that far below the Core i5 you’re looking at. Your GPU will dictate your frames per second at all but the times in which you’re loading new areas, or have tons of physics on the screen. Which usually isn’t the case because of how Devs try to minimize framerate loss due to piled on physics.
    I’d say, swap out the appropriate parts you’ve selected for the following:
    129 dollars, FX-4300http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…
    135 dollar GTX 650tihttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…
    (This is the difference between your 1440/900 or whatever it is with no anti aliasing high settings at 45-60 FPS and a constant 60+ with 4x anti aliasing and a smoother experience over all. This GPU is about another 1/2 more powerful at least.)
    New motherboard for the AM3+ socket, 70 dollarshttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…
    New Memory, faster than the other stuff, 1600MHZ though your old stuff will work, 75 dollarshttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…
    Last thing I can think of, you didn’t mention the brand of your Power Supply. Make sure it’s a trustable source. Do your research into the company. Don’t buy any cheap chinese stuff, because if it goes out it’ll take your motherboard with it.

    that will easily play games, a bit overkill on the ram (have you considered an AMD processor?)i have a 6770 which is basically the older model of the next graphics card up from yours, a phenom II x4 @ 3.9GHz, and 4gb of ddr3 1600mhz ram and it will play far cry 3 on medium settings and tf2/l4d2 on high settings easily. the sound card is probably not necessary unless you have a really good sound system/headphones and make sure the the psu costs you at least £50 otherwise you run the risk of a cheap psu blowing up your system. also unless you already have experience with windows 8 i recommend that you find the consumer preview and try it, it may not be right for you
