Get rid of the motherboard since its ITX and you want micro atx motherboard... get this one and cheaper too... ASRock H97M Anniversary LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

You don't need that cooler, the cpu comes with one.

Get this PSU instead SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

With the money saved replace the video card with Geforce 750ti for little more can go with gtx 960.

Let's see what others think as well

It's a good build at that budget, but I'd agree with bigdog33 on all of the above mentioned points.

Depending on what games you intend on playing on the machine you *may* want to consider picking up an i3/i5 if you can stretch the budget, though I understand it's difficult to justify the extra spend, for a mid-range i5 you'll add a substantial amount to the cost.

But an aftermarket cooler, and you can OC a G3258 to perform quite well.

Unless you're playing a game that refuses to run on 2 threads.

True, forgot about that. Which is dumb, b/c they're mostly artificial limits... Wasn't Far Cry 4 one that did that?
