The system is fairly good, but I feel this is a better system for your money:

The motherboard offers m.2 support, a feature your MSI board does not have. M.2 is one of the fastest connections for SSD, and a good port to have on a new system.
I would wait to purchase a video card until the RX480 releases. It will be at the same price, and offer performance greater than a GTX 970. If you have to purchase now, the R9 380X will be a good buy.
The power supply I added is a higher tier model, and while being 620W, it will be fine for any future purchases. It is rated tier 2 by the PSU tier list.

Overall the system is a good buy, I would just wait till the RX 480 releases to see much greater performance.

Yes, go with the Gigabyte board. You get better features for around the same price. If you have to buy now, the R9 380X will be great for gaming. I would recommend this Asus version, as it is cheaper and offers similar performance.
