R7 265 is a great card and you should really concider it. Its also 140$ and edges out the 750ti in most catergories Execpt power consumption. Also it comes with The 2 never settle games (Best ones are bf4 and thief imo).

I've upgraded your ram and removed the CPU cooler and thermal compound as the one that ships with the CPU is quite good unless you plan to overclock.

You might want to get an SSD for your OS. You haven't added an OS and keyboard, so I assume you already have one.

@KingofPants- the 750ti and r7 265 are 'almost' identical, however, I would recommend 750ti as it requires less power, runs cooler and does not need a seperate pci-e power connector

Get atleast a 80 GB one, you won't be installing only windows but some programs on it too. With $20 more you can get a 120gb ssd.
