Get a TX650 or Seasonic 620 for 89 dollars instead.

Is there a reason you need/want 16GB of RAM?

This 650
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply - Newegg.com

Also, if you ditched the expensive case you can get a more powerful GPU which in the end is better. You could get a 770 for that money.

If you can afford to keep the 16GB while getting a better card then do it.

Like I said, if you can afford the better card while keeping 16GB of RAM then do it, because RAM prices are only going to increase as DDR4 gets closer. There is no benefit to faster RAM, so retaining a DDR3 system till like 2015 or later will be fine. The new consoles will bring more RAM usage, although I'm not sure exactly how much.
