You can do way better for 1000.

Use 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

This board.
ASUS H81M-K LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

Get 8GB of the cheapest 1600MHz RAM.
Pareema 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MD316C81611L2 - Newegg.com

Get at least a GTX 960, but your budget should be able to do a GTX 970.

Im sure you'll get a couple of other responses before I get out of work, (on the phone now) but for a $1000 budget you could build a pretty decent build. Well unless you need things like the monitor and keyboard and such included in that budget but if that's just for the tower you can do much better than a 750TI and I would personally go with a higher end power supply, The Corsair CX series is ok but is there budget line and isn't as good as there othere lines of PS. Well if you don't have any other recommendations before I get to my PC I'll put a list together for a decent build for that budget.

+1 on the 970. I've been using mine without issues for over a month now. Although due to my high ambient temps (30-40 degrees C) it does occasionally thermal throttle when gaming heavily (Ultra settings, 1080p, the works)

I'm up for any other recommendations! Just playing around with parts but if you can change of something better for the buck I'm all ears. Thanks.
