Changed CPU for a haswell i3, It should give you plenty of performance and saved some money for a better PSU. Haswell also has a future upgrade path where as the Ivy Bridge you chose does not.

Changed the motherboard for a higher quality one and because the i3 I went with will not work in the motherboard you chose.

Changed the power supply to one from a trusted company that wont die and destroy your system. Never go cheap on a power supply because if you get a low quality PSU and it fails, it can take every component in your pc with it, not to mention they can be unsafe.
