Looks good, I don't really see much you can/should change out except for one thing that might put you closer to your budget.

8GB of ram. Specifically a 2x4GB kit, a single stick of ram suffers in performance in comparison to a dual channel kit.

The CPU cooler is trash and no better than the stock one so drop it.

Everything else looks good
