Looking for advice on ~$500 gaming pc.

I've had a xbox one for about half a year now, and I like it. But I wanted to get into pc gaming because of more game options and more variety. I'm perfectly fine with how well my xbox runs, and I don't want to break the bank on a pc, so I want to build a pc for around the same price as I got my xbox for. Heres what I have so far PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

From here it looks good, not much more that can be done about it. I would recommend jumping up to the r9 270x though for a couple more bucks because that 750ti appears overpriced. On ebay you can get a 7970(equivalentof r9 280) for around 150 bucks
