Looks like that for now:

CPU Intel Core i5-4570 3.2GHz Quad-Core (Microcenter Override) $159.99
Motherboard MSI H87M-G43 Micro ATX LGA1150 $89.98
Memory G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 $77.99
Storage Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB 2.5" SSD $114.99
Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB $249.99
Case Corsair 300R ATX Mid Tower $59.99
Power Supply Corsair 600W ATX12V $54.99
Optical Drive Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer $19.98

I don't need a monitor, mouse, keyboard, or Windows.

What are my possible options? I don't plan on overclocking and could spend $50 more for a GTX 770 instead of 760.

Thank you for the help in advance!

EDIT: I plan on playing games on high~ultra for a few years. Nothing super intensive, just want to enjoy games on higher settings.

The GTX 760 can run Battlefield 4 on Ultra, and probably Titanfall too. However, If you're willing to spend extra to get the 770, do it. The 770 will last much longer than the 760 will against new games. Your build looks great.

Thanks for the input so far, I'm planning for a SSD simply because I have an external to use for storage. Although I'm leaning towards the GTX 770 now.

I seem to have missed that you only have an SSD... you should add a 1TB 7200 RPM hdd. Western Digital makes a good one (caviar blue). 128 GB fills up VERY FAST!

Yeah, 30gb will just go to the os and backup right there so you need more room.
