I have a 256 SSD & 1Tb HD & a GTX 960 card laying around so wanted to buy a few parts to build a small gaming PC. this would be a bit of a step up from my AMD APU build. I'm right about $598 shiped with tax with these. Any better suggestions? I can go another $100 into the build if it's worthwhile too.

There is nothing small about a full size tower. If your interest is primarily games, then this would be a better way to spend almost $700.

Don't buy the Thor - it's a gaudy, outdated monstrosity of a case, and I would seriously question the quality of that included 750W PSU as well.

This is what I would suggest:
