Quicker ram is available for the same price

750ti runs pretty cool & quiet iirc so you prolly don't need 2 extra fans

PSU is not made by a reputable firm, I think it's worth spending a few extra bucks on a quality manufacturer

amd gpus are usually better bang for your gaming buck, an extra $10 will get you a 270 which should easily out perform the 750ti (maybe add the extra fan back, they tend to run hotter iirc).
