Radeon R9 380 is much better choice for video card.

 

Also LGA1150 socket is already obsolete so better to stick with either LGA1151, LGA2011-3 or even much cheaper AM3+.

 

Also Windows 10 Retail is not much more expensive.

 

I'd change OS, GPU, MB and CPU. Total budget for those would be?

GPU http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-video-card-r9380p4255 (or any other R9 380 with 4GB memory)

OS http://pcpartpicker.com/part/microsoft-os-kw900016

 

CPU+MB+memory choices:

 

Option AMD

 

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-fd832ewmhkbox

or

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-fd8320frhkbox

 

And

 

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-m5a97r20

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f31866c10d16gab

 

Option Intel:

 

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80648i75820k

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gax99sli

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f42400c15d16gis

 

+ better CPU cooler for AMD. Intel option has no cooler.

 

6700K (LGA1151 alternative) is overpriced, so I consider it impossible to recommend.

 

First option: Some say AMD is slow for gaming. True for poorly optimized games. Looking game that just came out, http://www.techspot.com/review/1148-tom-clancys-the-division-benchmarks/page5.html

 

Also FX-8320(E) is quite cheap option and AMD Zen later this year may cause price war.

 

Second option: Hexa core+hyper threading from Intel. More future proof but also much more expensive option.

If I were you I would go with the skylake i7 6700k it's $363 on amazon and the MSI B150GAMINGM3 INTEL SKYLAKE I3 / I5 / I7 IN LGA1151 mother board isn't far off the price point of the one you have in the OP.

Overclocking with that motherboard can be problem.

B-series does not support overclocking. Supported some time but microcode update takes that away.
