I would agree. Most games are not going to be restricted by a lower end CPU as they are much more GPU dependent. As you are looking for something with a mid range high end graphics card the CPU will not be a bottleneck. Don't forget in my opinion a small boot SSD is a must have part nowadays. If you are not used to using them the difference in everyday use is night & day, & they are cheaper than ever. The rest of the parts look solid would change the GPU to a newer model tho.
