Personally I would suggest looking at an i7 CPU just for the fact of thinking a year or two down the road you will most likely have to upgrade the CPU to keep up with modern games, that being said if you invest a little more on an i7 , roughly $100 more now, that CPU should be good to handle what you need for the next 3-4 years.

The power supply is not a good unit. For a build like this, you want a higher quality unit. Also, there are cheaper non-reference 970s that will offer better cooling on the GPU.
