  1. Best answer
    Ditch the water cooling for a CM Hyper 212
    drop the psu to 500 - 550 watts

    swap in a 128 gig SSD for boot drive
    replace the GTX 960 with a GTX 970
  2. For that price, the R9 270 would have similar performance while being $70 less. Use that money and grab a better PSU. And I don't trust that brand for CPU coolers; I bet a CM Hyper 212 EVO is better for much less. And why are you getting 2 HDDs? 1 TB costs less than 2x500GB HDD.
