It's best if you ask us about a week before buying. By black friday or cyber monday, prices may drop and we might be able to fit better parts into your budget. You have a good build but I think you can get an i5 750 build in your budget if there are enough discounts/price cuts in the next 3-4 weeks.

Just one thought, I just bought a gaming system a few days ago. For an extra $5 you can get an Antec 750W PSU with that GPU.
