This is a PC I am building for myself, it will be for gaming, games such as CS:GO, COD BO3, and Plant V Zombies GW. The extra 140 MM fan is for the Cryorig H7 so it can match the red and black Color theme! Thanks for the Suggestions!

Way better for your money. The i3 smokes the FX and with hyper threading, it can handle the games you have listed. DDR4 RAM is now mainstream. Way better GPU, about 21% for the same price. Better PSU.

The 380 is actually a much better GPU than the 460, just power-hungry. It benches higher than a 960 and the 460 is comparable to a 950.

Actually you are correct. When looking at the benchmarks, I didn't realize I was actually looking on the 380 side instead of the 460 when I was stating my comment. The 380 is actually 21% overall better. My apologies, thank you.

No worries, bud. Their naming convention makes it way too confusing!
