Drop the 750w and grab a 650w HX or TX instead.
Get an ASRock Z77 board instead for the same price or cheaper. They are practically all the same give or take.
Drop the raptor and grab an SSD, they are so much faster and more worth the money.
With the money saved you should have enough money to get a 660ti and 3570k which will be much faster.
