Budget gaming build for tax season

I'll be claiming my son this year on my taxes, plus I plan to get quite a bit from my employers. I have only a basic idea of what I'm doing, so feel free to post some CC. I'm not looking to play Watch_Dogs with 2012 E3 graphics, but I'd like to be able to play most current games at a decent/acceptable framerate. I left a couple parts out because I have them at home. I have two SATAs(yeah, I know), peripherals, and an OS. I also have a few fans at home.

This is better than what you are planning to build, its going to perform better than any FM2+ builds.
