Well games question is covered. Now all I need to know is what resolution of monitor you'll be using (or upgrading to), if you need said monitor, and if you need an OS.

Eh, nope, nope, and more nope.

With your budget you can build a full high end gaming rig. A GT 640 will NOT cut that.

CPU:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54670K

Motherboard:
Newegg.com - ASRock Z87 Extreme4 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

RAM:
Newegg.com - ADATA XPG V1.0 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model AX3U1600W8G9-DB

GPU:
Newegg.com - EVGA 03G-P4-3783-KR GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Dual w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card

PSU:
SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

SSD+HDD:
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive - Newegg.com

Optical:
ASUS Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk Black - Newegg.com

Cooler:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm

$1362

Although the cooler is not necessary at all I went ahead and put it in there. The Full Tower ATX case you selected is IMO way too big for any normal user and not necessary with this caliber of machine but cases are personal preference anyways so I left room in your budget for that.

The GPU and CPU combo I went ahead and linked will max any game on the market out at what I'm assuming will be 1080p. That being said, maximizing your budget and should last you for quite a few years as well.
