What do you plan to play on this build? What settings?Also noticed you did not choose a case, do you already own one? I was thinking maybe you can cut down a bit on the CPU pay a bit extra in total and get a gtx 970 because you will notice a huge difference between them.( my brother had a gtx 960 not long ago, it's sitting in the box right now gathering dust,waiting to be sold.)

I had to drop the SSD, because that can always be added later and got a cheaper CPU, but one that will still do the job no problem, although if you could pay $60 more you can just add the SSD you chose.
