This GTX660 has good reviews and is $170 (after $20 MIR):

Motherboard?
Look for any Z87 1150 motherboard that has good reviews. It also depends on your BUDGET but my top choice would likely be Asus, followed by Gigabyte:

Update:
You don't require a Z87 version of the motherboard as the i5-4430 isn't overclockable. Here's a slightly cheaper 1150 motherboard: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gah87...

Do NOT get a motherboard unless it has fairly good customer feedback. You can waste a lot of time and money on a motherboard that has issues.

My top choice currently for medium budget is the Asus I linked above.
