The processor is a locked processor, meaning it won't be overclocked. Because of this, the stock cooler would do just fine. You don't need the aftermarket cooler.

The motherboard is fine. If you want to save some money there, you can consider an ASRock H97M Pro 4.

For the PSU, consider this one if you decide to take off the cpu cooler or changing the motherboard.

For 15$ more you can get a r9 280, if you decide to take off the CPU cooler you can get this and your budget wouldn't change too much.

The little extra headroom is always nice to have, especially when you consider adding on more stuff later on, or maybe even using it in a future build or something. You could stick with the 520w if you want, again, they're just suggestions, like you said, it's enough.

Someone else should probably put in their input on how to improve their system. I think those were the things that would've probably improved it the most.

Price wise, the XFX r9 280 is cheaper. You could overclock it to match the performance of the MSI card. It would also lower the cost of your system by a bit.
