It ended up being a faulty mobo. I RMA'd the board back to newegg and now everything works again.

The GTX 950 is better than the 750ti. You don't usually need a cd/dvd drive for gaming since most can be downloaded. Here's my thoughts on your build.

I have a build guide that is close. You could change up the HD configuration to spend less.

Nice build. I just built a similar one . Your temps under load seem pretty high. How is the airflow in your case?

Yes, you adjust it through the motherboard(bios)

The stock fans are OK but a little loud for my liking. So i got fans that you can programmatically change the fan speed(pwm) which allows you to make them quieter. Plus you only get two 120s with the case but the case takes two 140s for the front intake, one 140 for the rear top and one 120 for the rear. If you don't want to spend any more than you have to on fans I would suggest you get at least one 140 for the rear top and switch the two provided 120s to the two front intake spots.

LOL. I see so many of the "I'm 14 and have budget of ..." lines on this site thought I would change it up a little =).
