No, please no CX Psu and Kingston V300 SSD.

The cx series is known for not so great internals and Kingston has changed the V300 series by using asynchronous NAND. It was great value but now it is a terrible ssd. http://www.overclock.net/t/1457629/psa-about-the-kingston-v300-ssd-probable-foul-play-by-kingston

I like p4inkill3r ´s build suggestion. It could use some ssd but for this budget it seems like only 1 ssd or hdd is possible.

I like this build, but what do you think if I change R9 270x or R7 for Nvidia 750 ti?

Don't use the 270X at all. The usual difference from a 270 to a 270X makes it kinda pointless. Eithe do 270 or 280X.
The R7 265 MIGHT not be a good deal, again, depends on the price of the 270. Same goes for 2060 vs 260X. The 750Ti loses to the R7 series based on pure performance, but the power consumption is hilariously low, so if thats a good factor, then sure, why not?

The Vapor-X 270x murders the 750ti, and if you buy the 270x, you get some free games.

Well that 270X price Completely invalidates my suggestion. Heck, its matching the price or CHEAPER than a 265 I saw, ironically, a Sapphire 265. Nice build.

Since, it's a non K version.. I would say it's worth few extra dollars.

The PC Mate is an OK budget board, but I'd still go with the ASRock.
