You haven't put in prices or sources.

Usually you an get a better card than the gtx660 but cheaper.

Corsair CSM aren't a real good power supply. Get a Seasonic 520, XFX 550 or Antec HCG 520M instead.

you dont need a 750 watt for your build so as said above get a seasonic ,xfx psu 550 watts and get a r9 270 if u are comfortable with AMD or u can w8 for 3-4 months nvidia 800 series is going to release in q4 2014
