There's a few things I would change to squeeze more performance from the budget. The sounds card is not needed the onboard is more than adequate for gaming and the money it costs could be spent on a better GPU. A better motherboard(better OC support), and a bigger PSU(XFX is made by Seasonic) it will run 2 760's in SLI of you want to add another later for a performance boost. I don't see a case in the list so this list isif you already have one.
