Don't get a 750ti if your planing on upgrading in the near future. Get a 760+ or the amd alternative.

You said you liked the drivers for nvidia, But there are only 3 main advantages imo. 

1. Shadowplay. its very nice to record your game play but there is other alternatives 

2. G-sync: Really sweet technology but right now you couldn't fit it in your budget (if there were any to buy)

3. Game streaming: nvidia sheild is awesome but it costs 250+

3.5 Game optimization: nice but how hard is it to figure out your graphics settings

*amd has something called Gaming evolved app dont know much about it but it supposed to reward you for playing games + it has Game optimization and recording. 

 

Getting a 760 should give you 20+ fps in most games (compared to a 750ti) source: www.overclockersclub.com

If you are willing to go to the $900 dollar mark as you just said then my recommendation is:

save yourself the 150+ dollars on buying a 750ti if you were planing to upgrade later and buy what you want now.

Don't go with that cpu, go for an non s one that is clocked @3ghz or higher. Also why in the world would you need a 600watt power supply when you want to put in a 750ti ?. Go for a 500watt psu and use the money for a more solid cpu. Other than that i think it's a pretty capable machine.
