Looking at it I would change two things:

Get a better CPU cooler, CRYORIG makes good ones (but that EVO is sufficient.)

 

More wattage PSU, the EVGA 850W G2 has a 9.9 of 10 on jonnyguru which is awesome and $40 more.

 

These are just suggestions based on the extreme budget you have

For the Best builds and Price lists here is a world where many points of the price have been predefined already for your convenience!

The Xeon E3 1231 V3 IS BETTER Than the Core i5 4690K and a Significantly better value for the non-overclockers or value shoppers.

The OS is like a kind food, Try it before saying if you like it or don't.

Windows 7 is getting outdated and Windows 10 costs only a few dollars more.

I need S340. But more Define S'ish

Get a WD green or Blue might as well make your rig a bit quieter... You have 500GB SSD you don't need a "performance" HDD.

^get a cheap copy of win 7 and free upgrade to win 10

Great build will handle everything in 1080P and 1440P will have to turn down textures a bit in 4k though

Free upgrade means that you loose $100 when you build new rig.

changed RAM to something faster, costs about the same. will perform BETTER.

changed cooler to something apropriate. This will allow whisper silent operation, and heavy overclocks.

How so... Keys are good for 1 mobo regardless of how you get win 10. Also g2play.net sold me win 7 for $10 so I sure won't be losing $100

Get Sennheiser HD518's and a Modmic 4.0. The G930's are lackluster and have a lot of issues.

its a larger fan. its basically what you chose, just bigger.

nothing more to it.

 

but the company that makes it, Noctua. is one of the best manufacturers of air coolers, and their fans are some of the best in the world.
