Is time to upgrade or new build?

Hello all,

So I just had a topic on SSD, but I decided to just create a new one since it'll be a new subject. I've been thinking of upgrading parts of my PC recently and it started with just a SSD, then it became I might need new RAM, then I realized my GPU is starting to get old... So.... how about I just build a new PC. My PC will be used for gaming, and photo editing. I just need the tower. I have a OS, monitor, keyboard/mouse. So far this is what I was thinking.

PSU:
No idea, but it MUST be dual voltage (ex 110v-240v) because I'll be living overseas for quite some time)

RAM:
Don't matter

CPU:
Prefer Intel since that is what I always had in the past.

GPU:
I prefer NVIDIA. I see the EVGA 770 right now has 3 free games with it. that would be pretty cool

Case:
I have a laptop so mobility isn't that big of an issue. I can do a full size. Currently I have the HAF 922 and I like that.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147053 possibly? Only $110

CPU Cooler:
I don't plan on overclocking my CPU ever, so if you feel I don't need a cooler then I'll stick with the stock one. I will not overclock my CPU.

Hard-drive:
I added up how much room I use on my current PC and I saw it's at like 220GB so I think a 500GB SSD is good. I was thinking the Samsung 840 Evo 500GB

Optical:
Don't matter to me.

My budget is probably $1,500 total. What kind of setup could I get with that you all think?

Overseas? Don't build a PC.. you got things to do.

Haha I appreciate the concern. I'm going to England for 2 years for work. It's nothing major and not a big deal. I'll still be working a normal schedule over there. It's just I have a lot of vacation time with my current work and it transfers over to my new job in England, so I'll be taking a lot of days off to travel Europe. Not sure if you got me confused with going to Afghanistan or something like that.

Only part I'm still iffy on is the Power Supply. What is your opinion on all this?
