For that price would you consider a AMD build?

If you're doing the Pentium G860 route, the Radeon 7850 paired with an H77 motherboard will be a much faster system than a Phenom II 965 will.

Your build seems fine, you can lower the motherboard for a h61, if you need to lower the price down, but the b75 has better features.
The only thing i see bad is the gpu, i'd get a 7850, the 650 ti at 160$(before mir) is way to much expensive.
The 7850 will give a better performance in gaming, and it comes now with two games free, the BioShock Infinite and Tomb raider.
With both, it totals over 100$ value for free.
Here's a cheap 7850 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

An H77 motherboard is only like $15 more than the B75 and you're not stuck with parallel and serial ports that you'll never use.
