First Time Building - Please help

This is my first time building a PC. I put this partlist together just from my bits of computing knowledge and I was wondering if anyone could help improve on it and possibly help bring the cost down about 50$. Thanks in advance!

I plan to use this computer for medium-intensive gaming (Chivalry, Arma, Tf2, L4D) and a bit of low-intensity multitasking (writing a paper while watching youtube).

Thanks for the advice Sam! The only reason I'm getting such a big SSD is for the faster boot times. I would get a smaller one (just for the OS) but there's such a good deal on this SSD I had to pick it.

Is the GTX 760 that much better than the R9 270(x)?
