Not sure what you mean by 'Git GUI'...

If you want to use <YourEditorHere> as a text editor for gui, then by 
all means do so. If you also want to use that for git commit messages, 
etc, then

git config --global core.editor YourEditorHere

will make that the default editor.

If you want a gui to work with git... um... I'm not sure what to 
suggest. If you want something like gitk then you should probably use 
gitk (or gitx on osx, or tig). Atom's a text editor. Or at least that's 
all I've ever used it for. Maybe there's more there.
