Mobo is too expensive.

PSU is a poor choice of brand.

Change the power supply, go with Seasonic or Corsair. If you want to do SLI in the future go with 750 watts at least with enough amps in the +12V Rail.
You can buy a cheaper motherboard as Finneous said.

Some people have interest in monitors, speakers, mice and keyboards, so i will also including some recommendations for these items as well. I won’t be explaining the choices as peripherals are quite very much dependent on the person using the PC (For example, someone serious about audio may end up with $400 Audioengine 5+ speakers and an ASUS Xonar Essence STX), but here are some suggestions that are a good fit for this build.
Monitor ASUS VS247H-P 24″ Full HD Monitor
Sound Card Creative Sound Blaster Z
Speakers Logitech Z313 Speakers

Mouse Logitech Optical Gaming Mouse G400
Keyboard Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110
