You could drop the PSU to the 450 watts Capstone and still have enough power

Or you could drop it to the 550 watts version and use the 20$ saved on a better video card

I am going to place a vote of confidence for the GTX760 also.

Other thoughts:
At $144 that case is not a good value at all. You could get a really nice NZXT Phantom case for around $100 and use the savings to get a core I5.

I would not drop below 550 watts. I normally like buying what is needed and then a little extra when it comes to power supplies.

7950 is faster than a 760 or 660 and is only $200

Get a 8320 and of same level as 8350

For the price of your CPU and mb you can get a i5 and z87x
