If you're strictly gaming and not doing any video editing/streaming/etc, you can go with an i5 build.

Here's a build to consider:

The i5 is a better gaming cpu than the 8350 because its stronger in single threaded applications. It'll still handle well in games to come. Its still an overclockable cpu if you are into that or maybe consider it later on.

Cooler: water cooling is a bit too expensive, and the hyper 212 evo is enough for a nice overclock anyways.

RAM, cas 9 1600mhz should be the minimum for gaming.

GPU, the r9 280x is stronger than the gtx 760.

case, Unless you really want the other case, i changed it to lower the price a little bit. It wasn't much of a difference if you want the other case.

PSU: XFX 550w is better than the CX 600w. The XFX is a seasonic unit and has better parts compared to the CX600w. Under stress the xfx can last longer than the cx600w.
