Anything more I can improve?

So yesterday I made a topic asking for what I could improve on my gaming pc build and this is what I got from the input.

Once again, I want to ask, is there anything I could improve only paying 100$ more dollars or less? (I already have a HDD so it isn't on my list)

I only want to pay 100$ more than what I already have.

Yea, don't know how I overlooked that.

I have a GTX 760 and it runs amazing, but for the price I think a cheaper 770 might be better.

I would get it if I didn't have one concern. Do you think my power supply would be adequate enough if I were to overclock?

Are you sure the cpu wouldn't bottleneck the video card?
