CPU (Processor) :
GPU (Graphics Card) :

Then I can tell you the best possible option! Smile

Also, What will you be using the PC for? Extreme Gaming, Moderate Gaming / Entertainment, or Casual Gaming/Everyday use?

Hmm, Then Maybe downgrading the GPU and CPU isn't really in your best interest, Would you be comfortable downgrading something Such as RAM or HDD?

Trust me, That is the best, 32 is a bit too much even for extreme graming at time (Dependant on the Game), Going from 32 to 16 would be for the best, and 12 GB would also be optimal, and great for your preference. Smile

as drakan said, 32 is too much, maybe get 16gb of vengeance or ballistix or something.
