need OS? This build has quality components and the CPU can be overclocked when you are ready. Also, 650W is enough power for mid to high end GPUs.

MOBO: That is a extreme low end mobo and should not be used for overclocking. The one I suggested will allow you to get a good performance boost. Case: That Corsair case looks nice but you'll have to add at least 2 more fans. Add one more 120mm to front and a rear 120mm. RAM: the RAM I listed is better and cheaper. GPU: You chose a $170 750ti. For that price you can get a 270, which is faster than the 750ti. PSU: You said you want to upgrade. Well 430W will not allow you to. That's why I'm suggesting a semi-modular 600W PSU. You'll be able to safely overclock and run higher end GPUs in the future too.

Compare the 270 to 750ti. You'll see the 270 is much better. http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2014/02/18/nvidia-geforce-gtx-750-ti-review/8
