I skipped the graphic card as at this point, if you're not averse to AMD, a used 290X is a great value for the performance. Surely, you must be willing to buy used. Buying a last gen card for the price of new this late in its lifecycle when new cards are going to drop in a few months would lead to a higher write down of the card value than if you were to get a card either that which is used (290/290X) or get it at that time.

I also swapped out the 4690 for a unlocked processor as you may be able to get an extra performance out of it by overclocking.

Swapped the HDD for an SSD for a system that feels zippy and changed the PSU to something that is more better for the money
