Am I missing any components or do I have everything I need so I can build it right away when all the parts arrive? Also, the case I am getting comes with a 480w PSU but I am not sure how reliable it will be so should I buy a separate PSU to replace it?

Any recommendations or insight will be helpful as this is my first build! My budget is about $720 so I'm just a bit under it.

The only problem is that I don't live near a Micro Center and they do store pickup only but I can go a bit over my budget ti still fit in the CPU.

I am gonna overclock so that's why I included a cpu cooler. I changed a couple of things.How's this look? I can't afford to change to the GTX 760 and I like the low power consumption of the GTX 750 Ti anyways.
