Your build actually looks pretty solid. your processor is best bang for your buck value for gaming, the gpu is also amazing for you price if you are dead set on nvidia (r9 270x is also a good choice but its up to you) corsair makes great cases, 1tb is a good starting point. the only things i would change are: you might as well move the psu up to 500 watts just to be safe its really not much of a price difference, and this is just me, id get 1866 ram instead. for the first time in a long time ram speed is actually starting to make a difference again but its totally optional. i DO suggest getting an aftermarket cooler like the cooler master hyper 212 evo, its like 30 more dollars maybe on your build and it will keep your cpu much cooler amd stock coolers kind of suck. also if you feel like overclocking later the evo is enough for a decent amount. i have one myself and ive got my 4670k overclocked to 4.2 ghz from 3.2. anyway just some things to think about :) if you have any questions or want any suggestions i would be happy to help
