Change the SSD. Trion 150 or Adata SP550 would be fine.

Get a better PSU..

Doesn't make sense going with older haswell just because you have ram. Ram is so cheap now, just buy the fans later on and go with skylake and DDR4.

Also go with the SC EVGA card which has a higher clock and better cooler.

Still think you should go with skylake at this point which will give you better performance for the same price. You can start with 8gb and them buy another dimm.
