I threw your build into pcpartpicker and it came out to be about $700 not including the Keyboard and Microphone.

For a little bit more, you can get an i5 which will improve your performance significantly. Also, I do not recommend the 960 because it's price to performance just isn't that great. The r9 280 is at a great price point right now ($20-40 cheaper than 960) and is actually faster as well.

I tried to keep your red/black color scheme so the motherboard I included is slightly more expensive but performs great.

The cheaper corsair PSUs aren't very high quality, so I switched it out for an XFX PSU, the EVGA B2 750W is also on sale right now but is unnecessary for your build.

I replaced your RAM choice with G.Skill dual channel ram for slightly better performance.

Lastly, I changed your SSD from a Kingston drive to a Sandisk drive because Kingston drives are notorious for having issues. However, if possible, saving up for a Samsung SSD is my recommendation.

Anyways, here is the parts list I put together.

Thank you very much for replying phil i really appreciate it, so what i did was i changed the gpu to an msi r9 280x and the storage and the memory and the psu, but was cpu was in my country "the netherlands" more than 100$ more expansive, so that is quite unfortunate, but thank you very much with you awnser it helped me out alot.
