:P $2 over is fine. I'll check the couch cushions for loose change. (Jk)

This looks great. Thanks a lot!

You could always do this one too, save some dough. Difference between the 760 and the 750ti isnt TOO big. And if you are just a casual gaming it shouldn't affect you. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Isn't the 265 ( https://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-video-card-r7265acnj4 ) More powerful than the 750 ti?

I have something even better that's about $10 under your budget if you get a 80+ bronze power supply instead of gold. (Only put the gold one in there because it was just $10 more and it's normally like $20-$30 more. You should have no issues running most games on high/ultra if you ever decide to do a little more than light gaming.

I recommend the G3258 as well. I am sure you could bump it up to 4.0 easily on the stock cooler and H81M motherboard. I see you put VERY light gaming, so I would go with the 260x card in the $100 range.
