That's a great build, I'm not sure I would change anything. Just check the prices on the components you're getting and look for deals. Unless you specifically want the brands that you have there, you can probably save $50 on this rig without sacrificing quality. Maybe $10 on the RAM, $10 on the HDD, $30 on the GPU...

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Dg3fkL It has a unlocked i5, a GTX 970, a 750 watt psu thats tier 2, a SSD and a HDD. Im actually am not sure how I managed to fit all of that within your budget.
