You can run games at 1080P on high with a Radeon 280 or GTX760, what budget are you trying to work to?

I was trying to get it closer to 900-950. Do you have any other recommendations on where i can slim down?

OK, I'd change a few things to get the best bang for your buck;

  • with a CPU that can be overclocked an after market cooler is better
  • cheaper but still good motherboard
  • faster memory
  • 120GB SSD is big enough to hold OS, games on HDD
  • Radeon 290 powerful card at good price
  • Better PSU

MSI GeForce GT 730 1GB Video Card. My Favorite because it is Low Profile, It is very quiet, and, it pushes out 1080p at 60fps on most games I play (watch_dogs, BF4, TF2 and so on). Also, ASRock MoBo's tend to be junk. I recommend a MSI, ASUS or Gigabyte. Cheers.
