I'm building my first PC and I decided to keep it at around 500 - 600 dollars. I've done a lot of research and this is the best I have found for the price
Cpu: Intel i5 3570k
Mobo: H61M-E33/W8 LGA 1155 H61 mATX Intel Motherboard
RAM: Using from old prebuilt computer (8 gb)
PSU: Corsair CX430
GPU: GTX 760
Are there any other parts I could use to optimize it for gaming?

instead of H61. I suggest you get z77.
The "z" mobos are kinda meant for overclocking and I'm guessing you will using that i5 3570k

Best solution

Also, to support gtx 760, you probably need a higher wattage psu. 600w-650w

If price is the problem. maybe go for gtx 650ti and get z77 and keep the psu
