It's quite a good build for that budget.

You can get cheaper RAM though:

If you have a larger budget, you could get a gamer grade motherboard for better sound and more gaming related features. Also, an i5 could be useful for better performance. This would raise the budget, though:

Here's an alternative that trades GPU for CPU, but should still be decent at 1080p. It also puts Freesync on the table. Slightly more expensive, though.
