If you could spare 50 more dollars, you could just go with this build

With Windows, optical drive, and WiFi card that's over $100 over my budget

when you include wifi adapters and windows in your budget you will struggle to get something decent for 550. I would opt for a lesser graphics card for the short term and upgrade in the future. The 265 will out perform a 750ti so it is not bad and allows more for an i3 and better atx motherboard
