Hi guys, I was wondering if some of you could possibly take a glance at this build and see if anything could be improved for my budget? I could go up to around 950$. This is my first post here so please tell me if I did something wrong!  :D

EDIT: I realized I forgot to put in that I already have 2x4gb RAM from Corsair from a previous build. That is reflected in the pcpartpicker.

390 is better than 970. EVGA B1 and G1 are crap.

No need for a "Z" board with a locked i5. H81 is fine. No need for a cooler for the 4460 - stock is good for it. That allows you to get a 390X - almost as powerful as a 980 for cheaper.

EDIT: you forgot ram :P

Then just remove the RAM. 390X is the best GPU you can fit in that budget really.

Something like this, since you said the PSU was bad? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/cxqJ3C

You went from bad to fire hazard.

Get the EVGA GS650W - the one I recommended. It's based on the SeaSonic G-series platform.
