Upgrade to a 4670K and a Z87 board, the price between the two shouldnt be that far apart. I think you are overpaying for your ram. You should be able to find 2x4 ddr3-1600 for around $70. I would try to push for a 760, but a 660 will work too.

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/general_geekzilla/saved/tzgzK8 This build does go a little over the budget but a gtx 780 is worth it. You can remove the SSD if you want it to be on budget.
